North Korea may be preparing to conduct engine tests at a long-range rocket launch site, stepping up pressure on President Donald Trump ahead of a year-end deadline it imposed to get a better deal from the U.S. in nuclear disarmament talks.
A satellite image from Thursday shows activity at its Sohae Launch Facility, which leader Kim Jong Un had once said he dismantled in a concession to Trump. The move comes as the two sides have revisited old insults -- "Rocket Man" from Trump and "dotard" from North Korea -- while Pyongyang said Washington's behavior will determine what "Christmas gift" it gets from Kim.
