UN Security Council Condemns North Korea for Rocket Launch

The UN Security Council issues a presidential statement condemning North Korea for its April 5 launch of a three-stage Unha-2 rocket, which they claimed placed a satellite into orbit.

The Security Council declared the launch to be "in contravention of Security Council resolution 1718", and for punitive measures to be strengthened under that resolution.
