North preparing possible launch of another ICBM

Here we go again.

Defense and intelligence sources in the United States and South Korea said on Saturday North Korea appeared to be preparing to launch a long-range missile.

Two U.S. defense officials told AFP early Saturday, Korean time, that U.S. satellite photos have revealed vehicle activity at two sites in the North. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the movements resembled preparations before the North’s long-range rocket launch on April 5.

One site was in the west and the other was in the east of North Korea, the officials said. They offered no other details, according to AFP, but said there was no obvious sign from the North’s Yongbyon nuclear plant to suggest the country has reactivated its nuclear program.
