North Korea tests suspected ICBM rocket engine – US officials

North Korea has reportedly carried out another test of a space rocket engine, which could be used for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could potentially be capable of reaching the US mainland, American officials have told media outlets.

The rocket test was allegedly conducted on Wednesday at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station, where similar tests of the rocket technology took place on three occasions in March, one official familiar with the matter told Fox.

News of the test was also confirmed to Reuters by another US official, who said the test could be “for the smallest stage of ICBM rocket engine.”
