N.Korean launch succeeds at putting satellite in orbit: Korean media

Japan does not shoot down rocket passing over territory despite warnings

North Korea's rocket launch on Sunday appears to have been a success at putting a satellite into orbit, South Korean military sources told the Yonhap News Agency on Sunday.

If true, it would be the second time North Korea has successfully put a satellite into orbit, though neither South Korean nor U.S. agencies have confirmed whether it is in communication with DPRK space authorities.
