North Korea Moves Two More Missile Launchers To East Coast

North Korea has moved two additional missile launchers to its east coast region, indicating preparations for a missile launch on the Korean Peninsula, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported on Sunday.

"The satellite imagery released after April 16 showed that two additional transporter-erector-launchers (TEL) for shorter-range Scud missiles were moved to South Hamgyeong Province," the agency said.

In early April, North Korea moved two mid-range Musudan missiles to Wonsan and placed seven mobile missile TELs in the same area.

South Korea's military is closely monitoring the North's latest preparations for a missile launch, it added.

The military officials in Seoul think that the North may stage a show of force, such as a missile launch or a military parade, during the anniversary of the founding of its military on April 25.
