• Images suggest NKorea may be preparing missile launch


    TOKYO: Satellite imagery analysis suggests North Korea may be preparing a long-range ballistic missile launch, Japan’s Kyodo News reported Thursday, citing a Japanese government source. Imagery collected over the past several days suggested the launch from the western Dongchang-ri site could come in about a week, Kyodo said. While the report did not provide any details on the source of the analysis, Japan’s key security ally the United States regularly monitors North Korea from space while Japan itself in 2003 began its own satellite monitoring of the country. The report came as the international community discusses further sanctions against Pyongyang for conducting its fourth nuclear test earlier this month.
