South Korea's Yonhap news agency said Wednesday that a vehicle carrying radar equipment was seen moving to a launch site on the North's eastern coast from a munitions factory near Pyongyang.
"It can be analyzed that the North is proceeding with a missile launch preparation in stages," Yonhap quoted a South Korean government official it did not name as saying.
