Experts Say North Korea Is Rebuilding Rocket Test Site

(Washington, DC-AP) – Security experts say North Korea appears to be rebuilding a key long-range rocket site after last month’s failed summit. The Center for Strategic and International Studies says recent satellite imagery shows rapid progress at a test site that was shutdown last August.

The site on North Korea’s west coast has been used in the past for satellite launches which use ICBM technology. The center’s findings suggest North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may plan to demonstrate resolve after President Trump rejected demands to lift economic sanctions.
