US analysts detect 'activity' at North Korea missile site
A new satellite image shows a marked increase in activity at a North Korean missile launch site, pointing to a possible long-range ballistic missile test by Pyongyang in the next three weeks, according to satellite operator DigitalGlobe Inc.
The imagery was released days after a Japanese newspaper, the Asahi Shimbun, reported US analysts detected moves that were seen as preparation by North Korea for a long-range missile launch possibly this month.
DigitalGlobe, which provides commercial satellite imagery to the US government and foreign governments, published a new image that it said showed increased activity at North Korea’s Sohae Satellite Station.
It said the imagery showed more people, trucks and other equipment at the site, a level of activity that was consistent with preparations seen before North Koreas failed April 13th rocket launch. – (Reuters)
