North Korea may be preparing new long-range missile test: North Korea may be getting ready to test-launch another long-range missile, according to South Korea media reports and a defense ministry statement Tuesday.

South Korea’s Asia Business Daily reported that North Korea was spotted moving an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) toward its west coast.

The report, published Tuesday and cited by a Reuters story, said that North Korea started transporting the rocket on Monday, a day after it apparently successfully conducted its sixth nuclear test. The ICBM was moved at night to avoid surveillance.

South Korea has not confirmed the report but Defense Minister Song Young Moo told the country’s parliament that intelligence reports indicate that North Korea is preparing for another missile launch. Song also said the government believes North Korea has sufficiently miniaturized a nuclear warhead so that it can be mounted on an ICBM.
