SEOUL - North Korea' state television said on Sunday it would make a special announcement at noon (0330 GMT), after South Korea said the North had launched a long-range rocket.

North Korea, which says its rocket programme is aimed at launching satellites, fired the rocket from its missile base on the west coast on Sunday in defiance of UN sanctions barring it from using ballistic missile technology.

The state-run television did not elaborate on the special broadcast.
