U.N. to condemn North Korea launch

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the United States, Russia and China have agreed on language for a United Nations Security Council statement to be sent to North Korea in the next few days.

The document will use strong language, stating that the April 5 rocket launch was a violation of the UN's ban on North Korea's ballistic missile program, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Few tweets about the news could immediately be found in Asia and Europe, but American Twitterers quickly weighed in. They had mixed reaction to the news.
