North Korea puts missiles into storage

WASHINGTON, May 6 (UPI) -- North Korea has withdrawn two missiles from a launch site on the country's eastern coast and sent them to a storage facility, a U.S. official told CNN.

The intermediate range Musudan missiles have been a source of concern in recent months as North Korea's rhetoric intensified amid U.S.-South Korean military drills and the U.N. Security Council vote in March to increase sanctions.

The removal of the missiles has coincided with the completion of U.S.-South Korean military exercises and comes just ahead of President Obama's meeting Tuesday with South Korean President Park Geun-hye in Washington.
