PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea's state broadcaster has announced on TV that Pyongyang's rocket launch was a success.
North Koreans watching TV in Pyongyang broke out into applause after the noon (0300GMT) broadcast Wednesday, about two hours after the launch from a west coast station.
State media said the Unha rocket sent a satellite into space. U.S. officials said they had no immediate confirmation that any device reached orbit.
