The object that North Korea sent into space early Thursday appears to be “tumbling out of control” as it orbits the earth.

Syria: “United States officials confirm to NBC News that for the first time in the Syrian conflict, the Syrian military has been firing Scud missiles at rebel fighters in northern Syria. The officials report that as many as eight Scud missiles have been fired over the past several days.”

In related news, President Obama, hoping to apply further pressure to the Assad regime, has decided to “formally recognize a coalition of Syrian opposition groups as that country’s legitimate representative.”

A burgeoning constitutional crisis in Egypt: “Egypt’s main opposition coalition urged followers on Wednesday to vote against an Islamist-backed draft constitution in a divisive referendum scheduled for Saturday and vowed to fight the charter even if it is approved.”
