SEOUL - North Korea is likely to stage military provocation against the South following its failed long-range rocket launch on Friday, a senior South Korean defense ministry official said.

"The possibility of an additional long-range rocket launch or a nuclear test, as well as a military provocation to strengthen internal solidarity is very high," a defense ministry official told a parliamentary hearing.

There were no specific indications of military actions from North Korea, the official added.
