    The satellites, whose number is not specified yet, were launched on a Long March-2C rocket from Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwestern Sichuan province at 2:10 AM (local time), Xinhua news agency reported.

    The satellites have entered the preset orbit and today's launching mission was proclaimed a success, the report said. They will conduct electromagnetic probes and other experiments, the report said.
