UN holds North Korea emergency session

Asia Correspondent

The United Nations Security Council is due to hold an emergency session in an attempt to ratchet down tensions in the Korean peninsula. Yesterday, North Korea tested a long-range missile which may be capable of reaching Alaska. The US and South Korea carried out their own missile drills in response, with the US Secretary of State warning Washington would never accept a nuclear-armed North Korea.
