North Korea, as early as Monday, intends to make its third attempt to place a satellite into orbit. It is prohibited from doing that under United Nations sanctions, because the technology is considered similar for ballistic missiles. The international community is concerned this would give North Korea the capability to fire nuclear weapons across continents. VOA Correspondent Steve Herman in Seoul reports on the more immediate ramifications if North Korea's launch goes forth.
