Watch North Korea Launch a Long-range Rocket Into Orbit

1 minute read

North Korea has broadcast a new video purportedly showing Saturday’s long-range rocket launch, which sent a satellite into orbit.

In the video released Thursday by the regime’s state broadcaster, titled ‘The Launching of the Earth Observation Satellite Kwangmyongsong-4,’ the rocket is seen shooting off from a gantry. It then cuts away to footage of the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un speaking to officers and traveling on a plane.

U.S. officials say the satellite is now “tumbling in orbit” about 300 miles above earth. Its launch has been strongly condemned by the international community.
