North Korea reportedly moving ICBM towards coast
Purported nighttime preparations come on heels of first claimed hydrogen bomb test
North Korea appears to be moving what appears to be an intercontinental ballistic missile towards its west coast, according to an unidentified intelligence source cited by Seoul-based Asia Business Daily.
The rocket, which was detected Monday, is reportedly being moved at night to avoid surveillance.
South Korea’s Defense Ministry couldn’t immediately confirm the Asia Business Daily report.
The unconfirmed move follows Pyongyang’s sixth nuclear test on September 3. North Korea has declared that the device was a hydrogen weapon. Western analysts are still analyzing data from the underground blast to determine if the claim is true.
