North Korea says it is ready to launch a long-range rocket that it says will send a satellite into space, despite warnings of sanctions if the launch goes ahead.
Pyongyang says the Unha-3 rocket is scheduled for launch between 12 and 16 April to mark the centenary of the birth of its late leader Kim Il-sung.
Foreign journalists were invited to witness the launch preparations at the Tongchang-ri launch site on the country's north-west coast. Here's my report.
