Object failed to make orbit and crashed into the sea, neighbouring nations say, as South Korea tries to recover wreckage.
North Korea said it made a second attempt to launch a spy satellite into orbit on Thursday, triggering alarm sirens in Japan as residents were ordered to take shelter.
Pyongyang’s attempt to launch a reconnaissance satellite again failed, North Korea state media and neighbouring nations said, with KCNA citing an error in the third stage of the rocket’s separation.
Emergency alerts and evacuation orders were issued early in the morning for residents of Japan’s southernmost island of Okinawa as the rocket flew overhead before coming down in the Pacific Ocean.
North Korea vowed to make a third attempt to get its satellite into space in October, the state-run KCNA reported.
Its first failed attempt came on 31 May this year, but the projectile and its payload crashed into the sea shortly after being launched. Pyongyang later said it was due to rocket failure.
On Thursday, the space agency of North Korea said it launched the reconnaissance satellite Malligyong using a new type of carrier rocket – Chollima-1.
