North Korea's first spy satellite deployment confirmed

North Korea appears to have successfully placed a satellite into orbit, moving leader Kim Jong Un closer to his key policy goal of deploying an array of reconnaissance probes to keep an eye on US forces in the region.

South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement Wednesday that it assessed the satellite launched a day earlier has entered an orbit, adding the JCS was unclear whether the device was operational.
