All News 23:26 April 12, 2016

WASHINGTON, April 12 (Yonhap) -- North Korea is showing signs of preparations for what would be its first launch of a mobile ballistic missile that could potentially reach part of the United States, CNN reported Tuesday, citing U.S. officials.

Two unidentified officials were cited as saying that U.S. intelligence satellites have spotted such signs of preparations. The report also said that the potential launch could involve the Musudan missile, which could potentially hit Guam, or the KN-08 or the KN-14 missile.

Officials cautioned, however, that the North may not go ahead with a launch, adding that Pyongyang is well aware U.S. spy satellites keep constant watch on it, and such preparations could be part of the North's attempts to deceive the U.S., according to the report.
