N. Korea may have conducted rocket engine test
A recent satellite imagery shows North Korea may have conducted a long-range rocket engine test between August 25th and 30th.
38 North, a website devoted to analysis of North Korea, said Monday that the rocket engine test seems to have been conducted at the Dongchang-ri launch site, off the North's west coast.
The analysis was based on a comparison of two satellite images which appeared to show a probable rocket stage, a crane to mount and remove the rocket engine and monitoring instruments.
Dongchang-ri was where North Korea launched its Unha-3 long-range rocket last December.
In a separate development, Ben Rhodes, the U.S. deputy national security adviser told reporters Monday that North Korea is ahead of Iran with its nuclear development, thought to already possess nuclear weapons.
