North Korea Moves Second Missile To East

North Korea has now moved two missiles to its east coast, loading them on mobile launchers, South Korea's Yonhap news agency said.

The agency cited a top government official.

"It has been confirmed that North Korea, early this week, transported two Musudan mid-range missiles by train to the east coast and loaded them on vehicles equipped with launch pads," Yonhap quoted the official as saying.

Seoul said earlier it had been seeking urgent information on the first Korean missile that had been moved to the east coast.

Intelligence officials from Washington, Tokyo and Seoul are monitoring the movement of the weapon.
