North Korea Readying Another Missile Launch

North Korea appears to be preparing a test-launch of an intermediate-range ballistic missile, South Korea's Yonhap news agency said on Tuesday.

On April 15, the North failed to launch what was likely a Musudan missile, with a range of more than 3,000 km, meaning it could, if launched successfully, hit Japan and also theoretically put the US territory of Guam within range, Reuters reported. The Musudan missile, which can be fired from a mobile launcher, is not known to have been successfully flight-tested.

North Korea tested its fourth nuclear bomb on Jan. 6 and launched a long-range rocket on Feb. 7, both in defiance of UN resolutions.
