A special North Korean train that last month took a long-range missile to a west coast launch site has recently made a journey to another launch site on the east coast, a report said Wednesday.
South Korea and the United States are wondering whether Pyongyang intends simultaneous launches from both sites or whether the train’s latest journey is just a smokescreen to confuse watchers, Seoul’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper said.
The paper said the train was used in May to transport a missile to a newly-completed site at Dongchang-ri on the northwest coast.

It said the train was also recently spotted travelling from a missile research centre in Pyongyang to Musudan-ri on the east coast, which the North used for its three previous long-range missile launches.
The paper quoted a South Korean government source for its information. The National Intelligence Service declined comment on what it called intelligence matters.
