Works continue at Sohae Satellite Launch Facility, satellite imagery shows

Unclear whether North Korea preparing for launch event or attempting to increase leverage

North Korean efforts to reconstruct parts of the Sohae Satellite Launch Facility are continuing, imagery of the area dated March 8 shows, despite Kim Jong Un's pledge to Donald Trump to dismantle parts of the site last year in Singapore.

The latest imagery, published by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) on Saturday, follows similar findings posted earlier last week at both the CSIS and 38 North websites, which also drew attention to North Korean construction activities at the facility.
