December 11, 2012 News Extra

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. Security Council is condemning North Korea’s successful rocket launch.

The U.N.’s most powerful body said today in a brief statement after closed consultations that the launch violated a 2009 Security Council resolution banning “any launch using ballistic missile technology.”

The council said that after the North’s failed launch in April it demanded that Pyongyang halt all launches.

The council said it will consider “an appropriate response.”
