UNITED NATIONS- The United States, Japan and South Korea have requested an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Sunday to discuss the North Korean rocket launch, council diplomats said.

Speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity on Saturday, the diplomats said the meeting would likely take place at 11 a.m. ET (1600 GMT) at UN headquarters.

The diplomats offered no further details about the possible meeting of the 15-nation Security Council.
