A source said “The photographer who stood near Hwasong-15 missile was enveloped by fire. I was shocked to see officials watching the launch. I did not know whether it was the fault of the cameraman or the control center. But it was impossible for leader Kim Jong-un who was at the site not to have witnessed the incident.”

Media from South Korea reported that North Korea official newspaper ‘Workers' News’ sent many photographers to different locations so that they could take photos from different perspectives.

This missile was considered as the most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile to date. It appears that the photographer had no idea of the safety range at the launch site. South Korean analyst believed this photographer might not be the only casualty. There might be others who had suffered a similar fate. The recent missile test-fire is the sixteenth within these two months.
