North Korea may fire an intermediate range ballistic missile toward the East Sea in May, Japan's Asahi Shimbun said Friday.
Citing an unidentified military source, the daily said South Korea and the United States have detected signs of the imminent missile launch via satellite.
It projects that the launch will take place sometime in May despite the fact that it is usually difficult to pinpoint an exact launch site as the rocket uses solid fuel that can be easily assembled as well as a portable launch pad.
