UN strongly condemns North Korean missile launch that failed

UNITED NATIONS -- The UN Security Council is strongly condemning North Korea's latest ballistic missile launch which failed as a "grave violation" of its sanctions banning such tests.


The UN's most powerful body, in a statement approved Monday by its 15 members, deplored all North Korean missile tests, saying they contribute to the country's "development of nuclear weapons delivery systems and increase tension."


The council noted that Saturday's attempted launch followed 11 previous ballistic missile launches and a nuclear test on Sept. 9, all in violation of its resolutions.
