North Korea has been laying train tracks between a new missile test site in Tongchang-ri, North Pyongan Province and a nearby railroad station.
North Korean Taepodong-2 ballistic missile
In October last year before it shelled Yeonpyeong Island, the regime reportedly conducted an engine combustion test for the Taepodong-2 or an improved version of a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile in Tongchang-ri.
Analysts said the base at Tongchang-ri, whose construction was believed to be almost complete, was seen as vital to North Korea's quest for an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking the US.
