UN Security Council vows new sanctions after N Korea's rocket launch
Monday, 08 February 2016 - 7:05
The UN Security Council has strongly condemned North Korea's launch of a long-range rocket.
After an urgent meeting in New York, the council said it would soon adopt a new sanctions resolution in response.
Pyongyang said it fired the rocket to place a satellite in orbit - but critics believe the real purpose was to test a ballistic missile.
Yesterday’s launch comes weeks after North Korea held a fourth nuclear test - both acts violate UN resolutions.
