This Sept. 17, 2012 satellite image provided by DigitalGlobe and annotated by the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, 38 North, shows a facility in Sohae, North Korea where analysts believe rocket engines have been tested in a sign North Korea continues to develop its long-range ballistic missiles. The analysis provided to The Associated Press is based on satellite images taken as recently as late September of the Sohae site on the secretive country’s northwest coast. In April, the North conducted a failed attempt to launch a rocket from there carrying a satellite into space in defiance of a U.N. ban. The website of the U.S.-Korea Institute at SAIS said Monday Nov. 12, 2012 that it remains unclear whether the North is preparing a rocket launch but predicted it may embark on new rocket and nuclear tests in the first half of 2013.
