Japan says N. Korea's rocket debris fell into waters off Philippines
TOKYO, Dec. 12 (Yonhap) -- The Japanese government said Wednesday that a debris of North Korea's long-range rocket fell into waters off the Philippines at 10:05 a.m. after passing over Okinawa.

   Pyongyang fired off the rocket at 9:51 a.m., Seoul's defense ministry said earlier in the day. Japan didn't order its military to intercept the North Korean rocket, according to officials.

   Shortly after the North's defiant launch, the Japanese government convened an emergency meeting of security-related ministers.
