An emergency meeting of the United Nations security council will be held in the coming hours to discuss North Korea’s controversial rocket launch.

North Korea went ahead with the launch in the face of international calls not to.

Despite the pleadings of North Korea’s closest ally here in Beijing, North Korea fired a long-range rocket over Japan and into space earlier today.
