North Korea moves missile launchers


North Korea has recently moved two additional missile launchers, believed to be for Scud missiles, to its east coast, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported Sunday, quoting a military source familiar with the matter.

Yonhap said the move is yet another sign of preparations for a missile launch at a time when the security climate on the Korean Peninsula is already volatile.

The report said satellite imagery released after Tuesday, a day after the April 15 celebrations of the 101st anniversary of the birth of late founder Kim Il Sung, showed that two additional mobile launchers for short-range Scud missiles were moved to Wonsan and South Hamgyeong Province at its eastern coast.
