An anti-North Korean protester defaces a North Korean flag and a portrait of the North's leader Kim Jong-un in central Seoul during a protest of the North's rocket launch. A North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman reiterated that the rocket was a "peaceful project", reported Reuters.
North Korea successfully launched a rocket Wednesday to put a satellite in orbit, it said, though other countries like the United States viewed it as a "provocative" move.
