    Isolated North Korea launched a long-range rocket on Wednesday in defiance of condemnation by critics who believe it is seeking to develop technology that will enable it to deliver a nuclear warhead, South Korean TV channel YTN reported.

    YTN said the rocket was launched from a site on the west coast. A launch in April ended in failure minutes later.

    North Korea says the launch is aimed merely at putting a weather satellite in orbit
