A handout picture released by the European Space Agency (ESA) on June 27, 2010 at the Arianespace launch site in Kourou, French Guiana shows the launch of an Ariane 5 rocket the day before at 6:41 pm (2141 GMT). It successfully placed two satellites in orbit, after twice delaying the launch for technical reasons this week. Riyadh-based communications operator Arabsat's 4.9-tonne satellite, made by Astrium and Thales Alenia Space, separated 26 minutes and 39 seconds after the launch while the South Korean satellite separated 32 minutes later.  AFP
