A rocket launch detected from North Korea early Wednesday may have failed and Seoul is analyzing the issue, the South Korean military said.

According to reports the rocket disappeared from South Korean authorities' radar before reaching a point in the trajectory the North had earlier announced.

Seoul's military is currently analyzing the data for all possibilities including the projectile exploding and possible debris.
