THE US military has warned North Korea could be scheduling another nuclear test later this week.

Launching equipment was detected arriving in Kusong last Friday, and according to a US defence official it signals Kim Jong-un is preparing to to launch another test intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) within days.

Kusong was the site of previous missile test launches, and the next one could coincide with the anniversary of the Korean War Armistice Day on Thursday, which Pyongyang celebrates as “Victory Day”.

It has been the location for other missile tests in the past, including a May test of a KN-17 intermediate range missile which traveled almost 500 miles before splashing down in the Sea of Japan.

The reclusive regime fired an test ICBM on July 4 which had the potential of reaching Alaska.

However despite the sabre-rattling by North Korea, US military experts doubt the regime can follow through with its claims with only the capability to launch a “limited” attack.

Vice-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Paul Selva said the July 4 test stopped short of showing North Korea had “the capacity to strike the United States with any degree of accuracy or reasonable confidence of success.”

The test on July 4 saw the Hwasong-14 travel 580 miles before falling into the Sea of Japan.
