North Korea Reportedly Appears to be Readying for New Launch
Published September 04, 2017
North Korea appears to be preparing to launch a ballistic missile-- possibly an ICBM, South Korean media reported Monday.
South Korea's Defense Ministry said North Korea appeared to be planning a future launch to show off its claimed ability to target the United States with nuclear weapons, though it was unclear when this might happen.
Following U.S. warnings to North Korea of a "massive military response," South Korea on Monday fired missiles into the sea to simulate an attack on the North's main nuclear test site a day after Pyongyang detonated its largest ever nuclear test explosion.
