US soldiers stand guard at Taesungdong Elementary School as a North Korean flag fluttering over the propaganda village of Gijeongdong, seen from South Korea's Taesungdong freedom village in the Demilitarized zone in Paju on February 4, 2016Fuel trucks were spotted at North Korea’s main satellite centre, according to a US think tank, however the group says it is unlikely Pyongyang has begun fuelling the rocket it plans to launch in the coming weeks. The satellite images of the North’s Sohae complex on Wednesday and Thursday showed the trucks at fuel and oxidizer bunkers, the US-Korea Institute said on its closely watched website, 38 North. “Contrary to recent reports, the presence of these tankers more likely indicates the filling of fuel/oxidizer tanks within the bunkers than the fuelling of the space launch vehicle”, the group said on Friday.
