This is BBC World News Today with me, Zeinab Badawi.

:00:08.:00:11.

An expensive and short-lived birthday present for North Korea's

:00:11.:00:13.

founding leader - this $850 million long-range rocket fails to reach

:00:13.:00:21.

orbit, breaking up and crashing into the Yellow Sea.

:00:21.:00:24.

North Korea's leadership placed huge importance on the satellite

:00:24.:00:30.

launch. Its failure is embarrassing. The question is, what sort of

:00:30.:00:34.

effect will it have on the regime and the young Kim Jong Un?

:00:34.:00:37.

The first British prime minister ever to visit Burma - David Cameron

:00:37.:00:40.

praises recent reforms, but warns against complacency. We must

:00:40.:00:45.

respond with caution, with care. We must always be sceptical and

:00:45.:00:50.

questioning, because we want to know those changes are irreversible.

:00:50.:00:53.

Activists in Syria say that several people have been shot dead during

:00:53.:00:59.

demonstrations after Friday prayers. Also coming up in the programme:

:00:59.:01:03.

Campaigning in the French presidential elections hots up. As

:01:03.:01:06.

the candidates prepare to make their final pitches to voters, we

:01:06.:01:16.
:01:16.:01:22.

ask what separates the four front And fusing art and entertainment -

:01:22.:01:24.

:01:24.:01:34.
:01:34.:01:41.

Hello and welcome. The long and tense build-up to the launch of

:01:41.:01:43.

North Korea's satellite rocket ended in a spectacular failure,

:01:43.:01:48.

with a huge splash in the sea. The international community believe

:01:48.:01:52.

that North Korea had been trying to test a long-range missile, and the

:01:52.:01:55.

UN today condemned their action, saying it was a violation of UN

:01:55.:02:00.

resolutions. The rocket launch was part of public celebrations marking

:02:00.:02:10.
:02:10.:02:15.

the Kim dynasty that founded North Korea.

:02:15.:02:20.

The his swagger is that of a naan bread for power up. King Gollum is

:02:20.:02:25.

29 years old. Today anointed -- Kim Jong Un was today and nodded

:02:25.:02:31.

Supreme Leader. The third generation of the Kim dynasty. His

:02:31.:02:37.

father and grandfather ruled before him. North Koreans are taught to

:02:37.:02:42.

revere them like gods. But the young king's elevation was meant to

:02:42.:02:46.

be accompanied by news that North Korea had successfully put a

:02:46.:02:52.

satellite into space, an achievement by such a young man

:02:52.:02:55.

would reinforce his right to the mantle of power. But there was no

:02:55.:02:58.

mention here of the rocket blowing up a minute into flight, just a

:02:58.:03:02.

brief statement earlier in the day that things had not gone to plan.

:03:02.:03:06.

North Korea's leadership placed huge importance on the satellite

:03:06.:03:10.

launch. Its failure is embarrassing. The question is, what effect will

:03:10.:03:15.

it have on the regime and the young Kim Jong Un? Toiling by hand, gangs

:03:15.:03:20.

of workers line the ball of bards at Pyongyang. The rocket was meant

:03:20.:03:26.

to be a way of showing North Korean that the socialist state the Kims

:03:26.:03:34.

have created is technologically advanced. Their neighbour said it

:03:34.:03:38.

was a disguised to test an intercontinental missile. The young

:03:38.:03:42.

Kim's father also tested nuclear bombs. This was the last place Kim

:03:42.:03:48.

Jong Il visited before dying. The tears are genuine. She believes he

:03:48.:03:54.

is immortal. We visited before the rocket exploded. She told us, we

:03:54.:03:57.

are grateful to Kim Jong Il for making our nation a powerful and

:03:57.:04:04.

strong country. Strength and self- reliance. There are virtues that

:04:04.:04:10.

are taught to all North Koreans. But now this country's neighbours

:04:10.:04:17.

fear that its young leader, who has suffered a blow to his prestige,

:04:17.:04:21.

may be tempted to respond with a new show of power. Perhaps by

:04:21.:04:27.

testing a nuclear bomb. This is already a deeply isolated place,

:04:27.:04:33.

under sanctions. The developing both missile technology and

:04:33.:04:37.

nuclear-weapons. But today there was only reference for the Kim

:04:37.:04:46.

dynasty. It was good? North Koreans are oblivious or

:04:46.:04:49.

unconcerned at that Kim Jong Un's rocket was a failure and that

:04:49.:04:53.

America, Britain and the others may now seek to isolate this country

:04:53.:04:55.

even further at the UN. One man who understands North Korea

:04:55.:04:59.

better than most is Christopher Hill. Until 2009, he led the US

:04:59.:05:02.

delegation to the six party talks aimed at resolving concerns over

:05:02.:05:12.
:05:12.:05:13.

North Korea's nuclear programme. He joins me now live from Denver. What

:05:13.:05:18.

impact do you think the failure of this rocket launch will have? Will

:05:18.:05:24.

it make criticism of North Korea worse, or not have much impact?

:05:24.:05:28.

Firstly, it is always a good day when one of their tests fails. But

:05:28.:05:32.

that is not the end of it. The North Koreans intend to improve

:05:32.:05:37.

their missile technology so that they can get a delivery system for

:05:37.:05:42.

their nuclear weapon. So we still have an enormous problem. The good

:05:42.:05:47.

news was the fact that we held together closely with the South

:05:47.:05:50.

Koreans and the Japanese. There was no sign of arguing about how to

:05:50.:05:57.

manage this. The diplomatic focus shifted back to the Chinese. They

:05:57.:06:02.

brokered this recent deal, where the US implicitly agreed to food

:06:02.:06:07.

aid in return for a freeze on getting the inspectors back into

:06:07.:06:11.

the country. We will have to see how the Chinese regard this. They

:06:11.:06:19.

cannot be happy with their neighbours. Looking at what is

:06:19.:06:24.

going on inside North Korea, this is a fairly unpredictable time. It

:06:24.:06:27.

is an embarrassing failure for the leadership. Is it going to embolden

:06:27.:06:33.

them to make more progress with their nuclear plans and to try to

:06:33.:06:37.

cover up the embarrassment? Could it lead up -- could it lead to a

:06:37.:06:40.

shake-up of the ruling elite, or might they direct their anger

:06:40.:06:44.

externally? The first concern many people have is the idea that they

:06:44.:06:49.

will follow this up by some technological success, which could

:06:49.:06:57.

be a nuclear test. That could be next. South Koreans believe that is

:06:57.:07:02.

what is coming. But the North Koreans certainly need to show that

:07:02.:07:08.

they are in charge of things. Right now, this was a test of Kim Jong

:07:08.:07:14.

Un's leadership. I would not want to be a North Korean missile

:07:14.:07:20.

engineer today. I can imagine that there will be a lot of changes to

:07:20.:07:25.

their missile programme. It is not the first time they have had a

:07:25.:07:30.

failure with liquid fuel rockets. More broadly, the Kim Jong Un

:07:30.:07:39.

regime has a lot to do in terms of getting itself established. They

:07:39.:07:42.

reached an agreement with the Americans and then reneged on it,

:07:42.:07:45.

suggesting that they did not have their act together in the first

:07:45.:07:49.

place. So we need to fasten our seatbelts for the next few weeks.

:07:49.:07:53.

And the United Nations has condemned the rocket launch, saying

:07:53.:07:57.

it is deplorable. Will they go further? Will this triggering a

:07:57.:08:01.

round of sanctions or greater action at the Security Council?

:08:01.:08:05.

Well, North Korea is the most sanctioned country in the world. So

:08:05.:08:08.

the issue is probably not just getting new sanctions on North

:08:08.:08:13.

Korea, but to implement the ones we have in a better way. That is where

:08:13.:08:19.

it will be focused on China. The Chinese are very much preoccupied

:08:19.:08:23.

with their internal issues right now. They have the succession,

:08:23.:08:28.

albeit not an election, coming up this year. They have turmoil inside

:08:28.:08:32.

their own Communist Party. Nonetheless, the Chinese will have

:08:32.:08:36.

to look at the situation in North Korea and step it up a little. They

:08:36.:08:45.

have not been able to deliver the North Koreans very much lately.

:08:45.:08:47.

The British Prime Minister, David Cameron, says he supports a

:08:47.:08:50.

suspension of sanctions against Burma, except for the ban on the

:08:50.:08:54.

sale of arms. Mr Cameron, the first Western leader to visit Burma since

:08:54.:08:57.

a civilian government came to power a year ago and the first serving

:08:58.:09:00.

British prime minister ever to visit Burma, was speaking after

:09:00.:09:07.

talks with the democracy leader, Aung San Ms Suu Kyi. Ms Suu Kyi

:09:07.:09:09.

herself said suspending sanctions would strengthen the position of

:09:09.:09:19.
:09:19.:09:21.

the reform movement. This was the moment a British prime

:09:22.:09:25.

minister oasts set foot in Burma for the first time in more than 60

:09:25.:09:29.

years, the moment he met the woman whose confinement in this house for

:09:29.:09:33.

14 years captured the world's attention. But today, she was free

:09:33.:09:37.

to receive her guest. No longer a political prisoner and instead,

:09:37.:09:41.

after historic elections, a new member of parliament. Their aim was

:09:41.:09:45.

to persuade Mr Cameron that her country's removed -- moved to

:09:45.:09:49.

reform is genuine. His aim was to lend Britain's support for that

:09:49.:09:53.

change. As a result, he said he sanctions against Burma should not

:09:53.:09:59.

be lifted, but suspended. Of course we must respond with caution, with

:09:59.:10:03.

care. We must always be sceptical and questioning, because we want to

:10:03.:10:07.

know that those changes are irreversible. But as we have

:10:07.:10:11.

discussed, it is right to suspend the sanctions that there are

:10:11.:10:18.

against Burma, not to lift them and not to include the arms embargo.

:10:18.:10:22.

This suspension would have taken place because of the steps taken by

:10:22.:10:28.

the president and other reformers. It would also make it clear to

:10:28.:10:33.

those against reform that should they try to obstruct the way of the

:10:33.:10:37.

reformers, sanctions could come back. David Cameron has never met

:10:37.:10:42.

Aung San Suu Kyi before, but the smiles and body language show that

:10:42.:10:47.

he was inspired by what she said. You are sitting in a garden where

:10:47.:10:52.

you were barely allowed to walk or to stand. Which used to be a jungle

:10:52.:10:57.

anyway. And only three years ago, you were threatened with prison.

:10:57.:11:00.

This visit is another example of David Cameron's willingness to play

:11:00.:11:05.

a bold stroke on the international stage. But for all the symbolic

:11:05.:11:09.

significance of his meeting today with Aung San Suu Kyi, the real

:11:09.:11:13.

impact will only be known if reform continues and sanctions are lifted.

:11:13.:11:18.

And all that depends on how the military-backed government response.

:11:18.:11:22.

So the Prime Minister travelled along the often empty 20 lane roads

:11:22.:11:27.

that lead to the imposing palace of Burma's President Thein Sein. He

:11:27.:11:32.

went to meet a man once at the art of the dictatorship, and now, he

:11:32.:11:36.

hopes, part of the country's moved to democracy. Along the way, he was

:11:36.:11:40.

greeted by the traditional water festivities that they believe wash

:11:40.:11:45.

away people's sins. The smiles were gone, the meeting more formal. But

:11:45.:11:48.

the Prime Minister welcomed Thein Sein's decision to allow new

:11:48.:11:51.

elections and urged him to go further in releasing political

:11:51.:11:55.

prisoners. He left the meeting convinced that the former general

:11:55.:11:59.

was at least sincere. This is a country where a third of citizens

:11:59.:12:02.

live in poverty and have waited so many decades to change. Leaving

:12:02.:12:08.

Burma today, David Cameron believes that change is so deep-seated that

:12:08.:12:11.

he is inviting Aung San Suu Kyi to London this summer. She has never

:12:11.:12:15.

felt confident enough to the Tate - - take the risk of leaving the

:12:15.:12:20.

country before. Today she said she just might.

:12:20.:12:29.

Now a look at some of the day's other news.

:12:29.:12:32.

Reports are coming in that the Sudanese army is advancing towards

:12:32.:12:36.

the town of Heglig, near the border with South Sudan. The south

:12:36.:12:39.

Sudanese army occupied the town earlier this week after violent

:12:39.:12:43.

clashes. Earlier, South Sudan called the UN troops to be deployed

:12:43.:12:51.

in the area until a political solution can be found.

:12:51.:12:53.

In Guinea Bissau, the President and Prime Minister have reportedly been

:12:54.:12:56.

arrested following a military coup on Thursday night. The Prime

:12:56.:12:58.

Minister, Carlos Gomes Junior, is the front-runner in the

:12:58.:13:01.

presidential election run-off due to take place at the end of this

:13:01.:13:04.

month. He was unpopular with the military over plans to scale it

:13:04.:13:08.

down. The organisers of Formula One say

:13:08.:13:11.

that the Grand Prix will go ahead in Bahrain as planned next week.

:13:11.:13:14.

There are concerns about Bahrain hosting the race whilst there is

:13:14.:13:17.

continuing political unrest in the Gulf state. Pro-democracy groups in

:13:17.:13:20.

Bahrain have called for the race to be cancelled, but Bernie Ecclestone,

:13:20.:13:24.

who runs Formula One, says the race is "200%" going to take place there.

:13:25.:13:27.

Anti-government activists in Syria say that several people have been

:13:27.:13:31.

shot dead during demonstrations held after Friday prayers. The

:13:31.:13:34.

violence is a test of the ceasefire brokered by the international envoy

:13:34.:13:44.
:13:44.:13:45.

Kofi Annan, which came into force yesterday.

:13:45.:13:51.

After Friday prayers, demonstrators tried to defy a security cordon and

:13:51.:13:55.

break through to the main square in the centre of this city. Troops

:13:55.:14:00.

opened fire, causing pandemonium. Activists said at least one

:14:00.:14:05.

protester was killed by gunfire and more than 20 others wounded.

:14:05.:14:11.

Security forces intervened to break up demonstrations in many places

:14:11.:14:17.

like this, just south of Damascus, where tear-gas was used. But

:14:17.:14:21.

despite the risks, thousands turned out in many parts of the country to

:14:21.:14:26.

voice their opposition to the regime. In some places, security

:14:26.:14:30.

forces apparently did not move in. The overall casualty figures were

:14:30.:14:36.

much lower than many feared. But away from the demonstrations, the

:14:36.:14:41.

military are still around with tanks and heavy weapons in many

:14:41.:14:45.

troubled spots like the third biggest city, Homs. Activists there

:14:45.:14:49.

said there has been a resumption of bombardment, although not on the

:14:49.:14:56.

scale that was killing dozens of people a day before the ceasefire.

:14:56.:15:00.

They also say there has been a wave of arrests. This footage shows

:15:00.:15:03.

troops apparently randomly detaining a suspect, beating and

:15:03.:15:08.

kicking him before taking him away. The Government says people are only

:15:08.:15:12.

arrested with legal warrants. The soldiers also seem to be shooting

:15:12.:15:22.
:15:22.:15:22.

at random. Getting them back to barracks with their tanks and heavy

:15:22.:15:26.

highest priorities in trying to stabilise the shaky truce. So is

:15:26.:15:31.

getting international observers into the country, while the UN

:15:31.:15:34.

Security Council ponders a resolution to cover to deportment,

:15:34.:15:39.

the first group is waiting for a signal to move. At the moment, we

:15:39.:15:45.

have an advance team standing by to board planes and get themselves on

:15:45.:15:51.

the ground as soon as possible. Kofi Annan still has a lot to do

:15:51.:15:55.

before it is trade -- stable. Only then can he get on with the equally

:15:55.:15:59.

daunting task of trying to foster a political agreement on the

:15:59.:16:05.

country's future. Members of the United Nations

:16:05.:16:09.

Security Council say they are finalising a draft resolution

:16:09.:16:13.

authorising a team of observers to travel to Syria. Our correspondent

:16:13.:16:18.

joins us from the UN headquarters. Are we expecting that resolution to

:16:18.:16:24.

be agreed by the end of Friday? had expected it, but it looks as

:16:24.:16:29.

though there is an unexpected delay. The Russians have raised objections

:16:29.:16:33.

about the text. There ambassador told us his idea had been for his

:16:33.:16:37.

simple and brief resolution which would be to get an advanced team on

:16:37.:16:41.

the ground and then a more detailed resolution in terms of the fuller

:16:41.:16:45.

mission would be negotiated over the next few days. But he says the

:16:45.:16:49.

draft he received was too long and complicated, and needed more

:16:49.:16:57.

negotiation. The main point of contention seems to be detailing

:16:57.:17:03.

the main conditions the Government would have to meet, including

:17:03.:17:08.

freedom of movement, freedom of communication and so on. They say

:17:08.:17:12.

you have to put these things in because these are international

:17:12.:17:16.

standards for an independent nation. The Russians have now tabled their

:17:16.:17:21.

own resolution, a shorter one. It is not clear what the next step

:17:21.:17:25.

will be. The council members will continue to discuss this issue.

:17:25.:17:28.

Whether they will be able to get over the difference by the end of

:17:28.:17:33.

the day is not clear. But they are all agreed on the two phases to

:17:33.:17:38.

this mission, that you have an advance team that goes out, much

:17:38.:17:42.

smaller, and then something like a up to 300 monitors to observe the

:17:42.:17:52.

ceasefire? Yes, they agreed on that plan. But the Russians objected to

:17:52.:17:57.

it all being covered in this draft resolution, or so they say. Their

:17:57.:18:00.

position is that the advanced team should get on the ground

:18:00.:18:04.

immediately. But the ambassador said to us today that he wanted

:18:04.:18:09.

just a short resolution saying that, whereas Western diplomats are

:18:09.:18:12.

saying you need more detail in terms of the conditions under which

:18:12.:18:22.
:18:22.:18:23.

they will work. Staying with Egypt, Egypt's first

:18:23.:18:26.

post-revolutionary presidential election may be six weeks away, but

:18:26.:18:31.

political tensions are already rising. The decision of Hosni

:18:31.:18:33.

Mubarak's former intelligence chief Omar Suleiman to run for the top

:18:33.:18:38.

job has angered many opponents of the current military government. In

:18:38.:18:42.

Khyra's iconic Tahrir Square today, thousands of demonstrators gathered

:18:42.:18:46.

in a mass protest targeting presidential hopefuls lead to the

:18:46.:18:53.

former regime of Hosni Mubarak. Our correspondent joins us from

:18:53.:18:57.

Cairo. So these presidential elections were supposed to mark the

:18:57.:19:01.

start of a new future for Egypt, and yet we are seeing these

:19:01.:19:08.

demonstrations in Tahrir Square as though nothing has changed?

:19:08.:19:11.

could say that, but we are now seeing the tension steadily

:19:12.:19:16.

ratcheting up as we run into the elections. There are arguments over

:19:16.:19:20.

who is eligible to stand for President. The Muslim Brotherhood

:19:20.:19:25.

strongly object to the candidacy of Omar Suleiman, the vice-president

:19:25.:19:29.

of Hosni Mubarak. They see it as a plot to bring back the old system.

:19:29.:19:34.

We are seeing a wider breakdown of trust between the Muslim

:19:34.:19:37.

Brotherhood and the ruling military council, a lack of faith between

:19:37.:19:41.

them. There are reports of a possible exchange between the

:19:41.:19:44.

Muslim Brotherhood and Field Marshal Tantawi, the head of the

:19:44.:19:47.

Military Council, about a naughty brother would want to bring in

:19:47.:19:50.

which would ban Omar Suleiman and other former regime figures from

:19:50.:19:54.

standing, but the military will not accept that. That is not confirmed

:19:54.:19:59.

yeah, but we expect that the military are determined to allow

:19:59.:20:07.

Omar Suleiman to stand. So these demonstrators we are seeing, are

:20:07.:20:14.

they are essentially Muslim Brotherhood supporters opposed to

:20:14.:20:17.

Omar Suleiman? Absolutely. We are seeing a lot of division, because

:20:17.:20:20.

this is almost entirely a demonstration by the Muslim

:20:20.:20:23.

Brotherhood and other Islamists such as the more hardline sophists.

:20:23.:20:28.

Next week, there will be a separate demonstration along the same theme

:20:28.:20:32.

from the more liberal secular opposition. Even the Islamists are

:20:32.:20:36.

divided among themselves about several different candidates, all

:20:36.:20:40.

of whom have a chance of becoming President. Even former regime

:20:40.:20:43.

figures, there are at least three of those in the race, all of whom

:20:43.:20:47.

have an outside chance of becoming President. And there are also

:20:47.:20:52.

people opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood candidate running

:20:52.:20:56.

because although he stepped down as deputy leader, he is essentially
