    North Korea says it's now in the process of injecting fuel into a long-range rocket ahead of a planned launch that's been condemned internationally.

    Pyongyang says the launch, due over the next few days, is simply designed to put a weather satellite into space.

    But several western countries believe the real aim is to test a missile that could carry a nuclear warhead.
