BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria will see any incursion on its territory as an act of aggression, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said on Saturday, days after Saudi Arabia announced it was ready to send in ground troops. "Any ground intervention on Syrian land without the agreement of the Syrian government is an act of aggression ... we regret that those (who invade) will return to their countries in coffins," al-Moualem told journalists.

North Korea's widely-condemned launch of a long-range rocket could happen within a matter of hours, after Pyongyang shortened and brought forward the start of the launch window to Sunday morning. An updated notification sent by Pyongyang to UN agencies on Saturday -- a copy of which was released by the South Korean government -- said the launch would now take place between February 7-14. The initial window announced by the North on Tuesday had been February 8-25.
