On Monday, multiple news agencies reported U.S. officials said that North Korea test-fired another rocket-engine test last Friday. According to CNN, U.S. officials believe that the test could be a part of the nation’s growing intercontinental ballistic missile program as the engine could possibly be used in an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Two U.S. defense missiles told CNN on Monday that the engine test is the third test of its kind in recent weeks. While one official said that the engine could be used in the ICBM, it is unclear whether it would need alterations for that to be the case.
