North Korea has unveiled two enormous statues of its former leaders Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-sung, in the capital Pyongyang.

The massive statues were revealed in a lavish ceremony attended by large crowds, including the current leader Kim Jong-un.

The unveiling comes on the same day that the launch of its controversial rocket failed.

BBC World's David Eades describes the ceremony.
