North Korea 'plans rocket launch'

North Korea has announced that it is preparing to launch a rocket carrying a communications satellite, but without giving an indication of a date.

It said the launch would mark a great step forward for the communist state.

Correspondents say the statement is Pyongyang's clearest reference yet to what neighbours believe may be the imminent test of a long-range missile.
