Report: NKorea indicates April satellite launch

South Korea's Yonhap news agency says that North Korea has informed an international organization that it plans to launch a satellite in early April.
Yonhap reported Thursday that the North informed the International Maritime Organization it will launch a satellite between April 4-8. Yonhap cited a source it did not identify.
Neighboring governments suspect the launch will be aimed at testing long-range missile technology and have urged Pyongyang not to go forward.
North Korea is banned from conducting ballistic missile activity under a 2006 U.N. Security Council resolution.
