US spy agencies say North Korea is possibly building more intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) capable of reaching the United States.
Citing senior US officials, The Washington Post reported on Monday that satellite photos and infrared imaging had indicated renewed work at a site on the outskirts of the North Korean capital, Pyongyang.
This is the same facility that produced Pyongyang’s first ICBM and “space-launch vehicles,” according to the report.
Based on the images taken in recent weeks, at least one and possibly two liquid-fueled missiles were being built.
“We see them going to work, just as before,” the Post quoted one senior official as saying on condition of anonymity.
Reuters quoted another US official as saying that it was not clear how far the potential missile construction had gone.
Images reportedly captured the daily movement of supply trucks and other vehicles around the facility.
