North Korea: Parade and fireworks celebrate rocket launch

North Koreans celebrated their controversial long-range rocket launch on 8 February with a vast parade and fireworks display. State-run television KRT showed video of thousands of Pyongyang citizens and soldiers along with high-ranking government officials attending the rally in the capital, the day after it launched a long-range rocket carrying what North Korea has called a satellite. Also broadcast by KRT was footage of North Koreans watching the about 10-minute-long fireworks display at Kim Il Sung square but their leader Kim Jong Un was not seen at the event. Feb 8, 2016
