Panic in Asia after North Korea launched a ballistic rocket, although it failed. ” A few minutes after launched the rocket disintegrated itself into many pieces” North Korea authorities said. The rocket flew a distance of 120 km before disintegrating.
North Korea admitted on Friday the failure of the rocket launch and also the fact that they failed to launch a satellite on the Earth’s orbit.
“Scientists, technicians and experts are studying the reasons of this failure” authorities also said. NORAD says that the rocket launched by North Korea is a intercontinental ballistic rocket, Taepodong-2, with a radius of action of between 6000 – 9000 km.
The U.S. security council will get together on Friday to talk about the rocket launched by North Korea.
U.S. State Secretary Hillary Clinton warned North Korea yesterday that if they launch the rocket the Security Council will meet to take appropriate measures.
