N. Korea Preps Long-Range Missile

North Korea seems bent on further freaking out world powers: In preparation for a test-firing that is only weeks away, North Korea has moved a sophisticated long-range ballistic missile to one of its launch pads, the Los Angeles Times reports. The new missile, which may be an updated version of the Taepodong-2 rocket Pyongyang fired in April, reportedly has a range of up to 4,000 miles and could reach Alaska. According to a researcher at Korea Institute for National Unification in Seoul, "North Korea could possibly launch its missile during the summit between South Korea and the United Staes." The summit is slated for June 16.
