North Korea has been spotted moving more ballistic missiles from a rocket facility in the capital Pyongyang, South Korea's Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) reported late Friday sparking fears Kim Jong-un is preparing another nuclear test outrage.
The report cited an unnamed intelligence source saying South Korean and U.S. intelligence officials detected missiles being transported away from North Korea's Missile Research and Development Facility at Sanum-dong in the northern part of Pyongyang.
The report did not specify the location but said the missiles being moved could be either intermediate range Hwasong-12 or intercontinental ballistic Hwasong-14 missiles.
A source from South Korea’s defence ministry said he could not confirm details of the report or whether there have been any unusual activities in the area mentioned.
South Korean officials fear the North could conduct more provocative acts near the anniversary of the founding of its communist party on October 10 or when China holds its Communist Party Congress on October 18.
