TOKYO, December 3 (Itar-Tass) — North Korea has notified Japan it will launch a rocket carrying a satellite between 07:00 and 12:00 local time in one of the days between December 10 and 22, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported on Monday.

The planned launch will be North Korea’s second launch attempt under current leader Kim Jong-un following a failed launch in April to celebrate the 100th birthday of North Korea’s first and eternal president Kim Il-sung.

The rocket broke apart two minutes after liftoff on April 13 and crashed to the Yellow Sea 165 kilometers west of Seoul.
