South Korea has said its analysis of the wreckage from a North Korean spy satellite that crashed into the sea suggests the equipment had no meaningful military use.

Pyongyang launched what it said was its first military spy satellite on May 31, but the rocket crashed soon after takeoff, plunging into the sea off South Korea’s west coast.

South Korea’s military began a salvage operation almost immediately, retrieving debris from the rocket as well as the satellite itself in a complex operation involving aircraft, the navy and deep sea divers.
