North Korea launches missiles

North Korea just launched at least six missiles -- one of them the long-range Taepodong-2 missile, according to senior State Department sources, with the Taepodong-2 test failing in midair.

The missiles were launched from a site other than the one intelligence officials have watched for weeks ahead of a possible long-range missile test, a senior State Department official said.

The United States, Japan and other countries have warned North Korea against a long-range missile test, saying it would be considered a provocation.
