North Korea Rocket Fails

North Korea Rocket Fails

Defying warnings from the international community, North Korea launched a long-range rocket on Friday, but it appears to have broken apart before escaping the earth's atmosphere, officials said.

No element of the rocket reached space, said a U.S. official, who based that conclusion on data collected by the United States from its first few moments aloft.

The failure was corroborated by a South Korean official, South Korea's Yonhap News reported.

The U.N. Security Council will meet Friday on the launch, two U.N. diplomats and a U.S. official told CNN.

The U.S. official said that, despite the launch's failure, "it will not change our response."
