Terminology controversy persists over N. Korea's planned launch
SEOUL, Dec. 3 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's planned space launch is raising a question over how to term the vehicle, with local media interchangeably calling it a missile or a rocket.

The North said on Saturday that it plans to launch a rocket carrying a "working satellite" between Dec. 10 and 22, with South Korea and other neighboring countries suspecting it is a disguised launch of a ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
