A man walks past portraits of the late North Korean leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, at the Kim Il Sung Square on Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016, in Pyongyang, North Korea. North Korea launched a rocket Feb. 7, carrying what it said was an Earth observation satellite into space. The U.N. Security Council condemned North Korea's launch of a long-range rocket that world leaders called a banned test of ballistic missile technology and another "intolerable provocation." The U.N.'s most powerful body pledged to quickly adopt a new resolution with "significant" new sanctions.
