North Korea 'preparing rocket launch'

AKIPRESS.COM - Satellite images of a facility near Pyongyang suggest that North Korea may be preparing to launch a missile or a satellite, BBC reports.

The increase in activity is around a site known as Sanumdong, where North Korea assembled most of its ballistic missiles and rockets.

It comes after reports earlier this week that North Korea's main rocket launch site at Sohae had been rebuilt.

Work to dismantle Sohae began last year but stopped as US talks stalled.

On Friday US President Donald Trump said he would be disappointed if North Korea was to resume weapons testing.
