The US and regional neighbours of North Korea have condemned Pyongyang's plans to launch a rocket-mounted satellite as an act of provocation.

North Korea state media reported that it will launch the rocket to mark the 100th birthday of its late Great Leader Kim Il-sung in April,.

The US said the launch would threaten regional security and Russia described the plan as a "serious concern".

The move is seen as violating UN Security Council resolutions.

A spokesman for the Korean Committee for Space Technology said that the launch would take place between 12th and 16 April.
