S.Korea: Provocation likely from North after rocket failure

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.

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