Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Japanese media say North Korea has told Japan it plans to launch a satellite in the coming days, in what could be a second try to put a military spy satellite into orbit. In late May, North Korea tried to launch its first spy satellite but the rocket fell into the sea. Kyodo News on Tuesday cited Japan’s coast guard as reporting that it was notified North Korea intends to launch a satellite between Thursday and Aug. 31. On Monday, the U.S. and South Korean militaries kicked off annual military exercises that North Korea views as an invasion rehearsal.
