North Korea: New North Korean Space Launch Site Appears Virtually Completed (video)

New satellite imagery obtained by VOA News shows North Korea has completed a launch tower at its second missile launch facility in the country's northwest. Intelligence analysts in the United States and South Korea are keeping a close eye on the new facility near the town of Tongchang-dong. As VOA correspondent Steve Herman reports from Seoul, the site is seen as a critical element in Pyongyang's quest to build a missile capable of delivering a nuclear weapon across the Pacific.
