In a written statement, the State Department said "This provocative act violates a standing moratorium on missile tests to which the North had previously committed. Regardless of whether the series of launches occurred as North Korea planned, they nevertheless demonstrate North Korea's intent to intimidate other states by developing missiles of increasingly longer ranges. We urge the North to refrain from further provocative acts, including further ballistic missile launches."
Several published reports indicate that the long range Taepo Dong 2 missile exploded some 35 seconds into its flight.
