North Korea has set a launch date of early April to launch a rocket, to put a satellite into orbit, sometime between the 4th and 8th of April.

It has fuelled fears in South Korea and the United States that Pyongyang may be preparing to test-fire a long-range missile and have warned it not to go ahead with the launch.
