India launches Israeli spy satellite

India has successfully launched an Israeli spy satellite into orbit, officials at the Sriharikota space station in southern India say.

Indian officials that given these sensitivities, the operation was secret and carried out under tight security.

The Tecsar satellite - sometimes referred to as the Polaris - was put into space on Monday morning.

Tecsar is said to have enhanced footage technology, which allows it to transmit images regardless of daytime and weather conditions.

It is considered to be one of the most advanced spy satellites that India has put into orbit to date.

Correspondents say the launch was the second commercial mission on behalf of another country that has been carried out by the Indian Space Research Organis
