Report: North Korea considers delaying rocket launch

From KJ Kwon

An announced rocket launch by North Korea this month may be delayed, officials there said Saturday, but did not give a reason for the change

North Korean scientists and technicians are "seriously examining the issue of readjusting the launching time" of a second long-range rocket this year, the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported, citing a spokesman for the Korean Committee of Space Technology.

Despite the potential delay, preparations for a launch continue, the spokesman said.
