North Korea Launches Rocket
North Korea shot off its rocket tonight at 10:30 EST.
FOX News reported:
North Korea defiantly carried out a provocative rocket launch Sunday that the U.S., Japan and other nations suspect was a cover for a test of its long-range missile technology.
Liftoff took place at 10:30 p.m. EDT Saturday from the coastal Musudan-ri launch pad in northeastern North Korea, the South Korean government said. In Washington, the State Department also confirmed the launch.
“We look on this as a provocative act,” U.S. State Department spokesman Fred Lash said.
The rocket flew over Japan and landed in the Pacific Ocean, the Japanese broadcaster NHK said, citing its government.
That stern finger wagging by President Obama didn’t seem to deter them much, did it?
