North Korea starts radar to track rocket - Yonhap

SEOUL, April 5 (Reuters) - North Korea has removed the cover from the top of a long-range rocket and started a radar needed to track its flight, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said on Sunday in an unsourced report, indicating a launch is imminent.

The United States, South Korea and Japan have said they would see the launch as a test of the North’s Taepodong-2 missile, which is designed to fly as far as Alaska.
