SEOUL, Dec. 3 (Yonhap) -- North Korea has installed a one-stage rocket at the Dongchang-ri launch site in the county's northwestern tip, a government source said Monday.

The move follows Pyongyang's Saturday announcement on its decision to launch a rocket carrying a "working satellite" between Dec. 10 and 22.

"The installment means that (North Korea) has began preparations for a long-range missile launch," said the government source.
