N.Korean rocket puts object into space, angers neighbors & U.S.
08:25 PM, 02.06.2016

Airbus Defense & Space and 38 North satellite image of the Sohae Satellite Launching Station in North KoreaBy Ju-min Park and Shinichi Saoshiro SEOUL/TOKYO (Reuters) - North Korea launched a long-range rocket on Sunday carrying what it has called a satellite, but its neighbors and Washington denounced the launch as a missile test, conducted in defiance of U.N. sanctions and just weeks after a nuclear bomb test. The U.S. Strategic Command said it had detected a missile entering space and South Korea's military said the rocket had put an object into orbit, quashing earlier media reports indicating the rocket might have failed in flight. "Everything we have seen is consistent with a successful repeat of the 2012 (launch)," said U.S. missile technology expert John Schilling, referring to a previous launch of what the North said was a communications satellite.

Rubio comes under heavy fire at Republican presidential debate
08:24 PM, 02.06.2016

Republican U.S. presidential candidate Rubio speaks as Trump listens during the Republican U.S. presidential candidates debate sponsored by ABC News at Saint Anselm College in ManchesterBy Steve Holland and Emily Stephenson MANCHESTER, N.H. (Reuters) - Rising Republican presidential contender Marco Rubio came under heavy attack in a presidential debate on Saturday from rivals who accused him of being too inexperienced for the White House and walking away from an immigration reform plan he championed. In a contentious debate three days ahead of Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump also battled with rival Jeb Bush over the use of eminent domain to seize private property and called for a compassionate approach to those who might lose their health insurance if Republicans repealed Obamacare. Polls show Trump leading in New Hampshire, the second of the state-by-state nominating contests to select candidates in the Nov. 8 election, with Rubio coming fast after a surprisingly strong third-place finish on Monday in Iowa, behind U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and Trump.     New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who are vying with Rubio for support from establishment Republicans in New Hampshire, compared Rubio's experience in the Senate to that of President Barack Obama, who also was a first-term senator when he was elected.     "He simply does not have the experience to be president of the United States and make these decisions," Christie said of Rubio.
