DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Satellite images suggest Iran has attempted a second satellite launch despite U.S. criticism of its program. Iran has not acknowledged conducting a launch.
            
Images released early Thursday by the Colorado-based company DigitalGlobe show a rocket at the Imam Khomeini Space Center in Iran's Semnan province on Tuesday. Images from Wednesday show the rocket was gone with what appears to be burn marks on its launch pad.
            
The images come as Iran has said it would launch its Doosti, or "Friendship," satellite. A launch in January failed to put another satellite into orbit.
            
The U.S. alleges such launches defy a U.N. Security Council resolution calling on Iran to undertake no activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.
            
Iran insists the launches do not violate the resolution.
