by News Editor
JPost – A dozen Iranian officials traveled to North Korea to observe the country’s rocket launch, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported Monday, quoting a diplomatic source.
The much hyped long-range rocket launch ended in failure on Friday. According to US and South Korean officials the rocket crashed into the sea a few minutes after send-off. Pyongyang had defied international pressure from the United States, the United Nations and others to push ahead with the launch timed to celebrate the 100th birthday of Kim Il-sung, the deceased founder of the state, and to coincide with the ascent to power of his grandson Kim Jong-un.
