The United Nations Security Council has strongly condemned North Korea's Sunday rocket launch. In a statement issued hours after the launch, the 15-member body said it would quickly follow up with a sanctions resolution in response to Pyongyang's "dangerous and serious violations." The statement was adopted during an emergency meeting after North Korea announced that it had put a satellite into orbit with a rocket launch.
