KAZAKHSTAN (CNN/RUSSIA 24) - An unmanned Russian rocket veered off course and exploded in a fireball on Tuesday, seconds after liftoff from a launch pad in Kazakhstan.
There were no immediate reports of casualties.
The RIA Novosti news agency reports the Proton-M rocket was carrying three satellites for Russia's global navigation satellite system, or GLONASS.
