NKorea may launch several missiles: US general
WASHINGTON (AFP) — The US military is prepared for the possibility that North Korea may launch several missiles to coincide with its scheduled rocket launch next month, a US general said on Thursday.
When the North Korean regime last tried to test a long-range missile in 2006, at "about the same time they also launched six other missiles," said General Walter Sharp, commander of US forces in South Korea.
"And we are watching very closely to see what else they will do between the fourth and the eighth April, and that we're prepared for that," Sharp told a senate hearing, referring to the scheduled North Korean rocket launch.
