SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A North Korean missile launch likely failed on Tuesday, South Korea's military said, the fourth in a series of high-profile failures that somewhat temper recent worries that the North is pushing quickly toward its goal of a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach America's mainland.
By Andreas Cremer BERLIN (Reuters) - Volkswagen's underlying profit fell less than expected in the first quarter as demand for upmarket Audi and Porsche models helped to offset a hit to VW sales from its emissions test cheating scandal. Europe's biggest carmaker said on Tuesday operating profit before one-off items fell 5.9 percent to 3.1 billion euros ($3.5 billion) on a 3.4 percent drop in sales revenues.
