North Korea

North Korea has launched a long-range rocket, South Korean news agency Yonhap has reported.

A previous launch in April failed when the rocket broke up after take-off.

North Korea says it plans to put a satellite into space, but many countries believe the tests are a cover for weapons development.

The US and other nations had previously warned the launch would constitute a test of long-range missile technology banned under UN resolutions.
