India has successfully put a satellite into orbit around Mars on its first attempt.

The Mangalyaan robotic probe arrived in orbit early on Wednesday following a 10-month journey from Earth.

A 24-minute engine burn slowed the probe down enough to allow it to be captured by Mars' gravity.

PM Narendra Modi congratulated the scientists and said India had achieved the "near impossible by successfully reaching Mars".
