Subject: DPRK Tests ICBM Engine
Softwar    9/16/2008 9:58:04 AM North Korea has carried out an engine ignition test for a missile believed to be capable of reaching the US west coast, a South Korean newspaper said Tuesday. Chosun Ilbo, quoting intelligence sources, said the engine was presumed to be for the Taepodong-2 missile with a range of 6,700 kilometres (4,150 miles). It said the test was conducted at a missile launch site being developed on the west coast whose existence was publicly reported last week. "A US spy satellite, KH-12, spotted that rocket engine tests took place at Tongchang-ri this year," one source told Chosun, adding the site was near completion.
