This item updates item 'N Korea's Satellite Launch Fails.'

Raw video : North Korean television has broadcast pictures of the state's controversial rocket launch. The authorities in Pyonyang insist they were only sending up a peaceful communications satellite - but neighbouring countries dispute the claim..

Russia and China have called for a restrained world response to North Korea's controversial rocket launch.

Moscow said it was a cause for concern, but urged against "hasty conclusions", while China said Pyongyang had the right to a peaceful space programme.

Divisions at the UN Security Council are hampering talks over Sunday's test.

Pyongyang says the test was a success, putting a satellite into orbit which is now transmitting data and revolutionary songs. The US says the attempt failed.
