South Korea Says North Korea is Likely to Fire Missile

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - South Korean senior intelligence
officials say North Korea appears to be setting up a long-range
missile, not a satellite launch.
The assessment for South Korean lawmakers came a day after North
Korea announced it was preparing to send a satellite into orbit.
National Intelligence Service officials say the object's shape
"is similar to" the country's long-range missile. The readout
comes from the office of a lawmaker who attended the closed-door
session.
A senior U.S. intelligence official has told The Associated
Press that North Korea is about a month away from launch.
Jane's Defense Weekly says activity at the site suggests North
Korea could be preparing for a missile launch within days.
