South Korea says it's closely monitoring a missile launch site in the DPRK. The announcement comes after the release of new satellite images showing increased activity at the Sohae Satellite Launch Station.

The satellite imagery was released days after Japanese newspaper, Asahi Shimbun, reported that US intelligence analysts had detected activity pointing to a possible long-range missile test as early as next month.

DigitalGlobe, a provider of commercial satellite imagery to the US and foreign governments, released the images on Monday.

US intelligence analysts say the images show a level of activity consistent with preparations seen before the DPRK’s failed rocket launch in April.
