North Korea plans to launch space satellite


Japan has been informed that North Korea plans to launch a satellite between May 27 and June 4 after it launched its first spy satellite in its third attempt last November. Japan’s coast guard said the eight-day launch window began Sunday through midnight Monday. North Korea described three maritime risk zones near the Korean peninsula and close to the Philippine island of Luzon, where debris from the satellite-carrying rocket may have fallen.

The notice came ahead of the first trilateral summit between Japan, South Korea and China in nearly five years.
