NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong-un has disappeared from public view for the last two weeks, triggering fears the country is preparing for yet another missile launch.

The dictator was last seen in public some two weeks and the last time he disappeared from the public eye was just before the North Korea’s most recent test firing of the Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

The last time he was seen in public was July 30th when a celebration was held for the successful test launch of the Hwasong-14 missile which the Korean Central News Agency reported the following day.

The young North Korean leader previously disappeared for two weeks before the two test launches of Hwasong-14s.

Missile test fears have been compounded by the recent release of satellite images by 38 North that indicate that the state is preparing to launch a submarine-based ICBM using the Pukguksong-1 launch system.

The most likely date for any test firing is August 15, a public holiday in the country marking the Korean Peninsula’s liberation from Japan at the end of the Second World War.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo told Fox News on Sunday that he would not be surprised if another test were carried out.

He said: “I am quite confident that Kim will continue to try to develop his missile programme, so it wouldn’t surprise me if there was another missile test.”

Speculation over a possible test firing by North Korea comes amid a period of heightened tensions between North Korea and the United States with both sides issuing threats and counter-threats ever sub the second ICBM test last month.
