North Korea tests engine for long-range missile

Seoul - North Korea has conducted an engine ignition test for a long-range missile at a new launch site on its west coast, South Korean media said Tuesday.

The test was presumably for the engine of Taepodong-2 missile, which has a range of 6,700 kilometres, or an improved version of the same missile, capable of flying more than 10,000 kilometres, the Chosun Ilbo newspaper said, quoting government sources.

The test, if confirmed, would show that North Korea is working on boosting the range of its missiles.
