A man watches a news report on North Korea's planned rocket launch as the television screen shows file footage of North Korea's Unha-3 rocket which launched in 2012, at a railway station in Seoul on February 3, 2016. North Korea announced it planned to launch a space rocket between February 8-25, a move condemned by the United States as 'another egregious violation' of UN resolutions following Pyongyang's nuclear test last month.
