April 09, 2013

A top U.S. military official confirmed today that North Korea has moved a Musudan missile to its eastern coast.

“As has been widely reported, there has been a Musudan movement to the east coast,” Admiral Samuel Locklear, the head of U.S. Pacific Command, said at a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee. He said the missile has a range of 3,000 to 3,500 miles and could possibly hit the U.S. territory of Guam, though not the U.S. mainland.
