    Overhead satellite imagery in recent days has shown the movement of personnel, rocket-related equipment and fuel into the facility in the north of the country, according to a U.S. official.

    North Korea will likely say it's launching a satellite from the site, but U.S. officials say the rocket involved could be used as an intercontinental ballistic missile.

    An unnamed Japanese government source said an analysis of satellite imagery indicates North Korea may be preparing for a missile launch, Japan's Kyodo news agency said Thursday.
