The U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies says the image shows that North Korea is upgrading the launch site to handle bigger rockets, which could increase international concern over the secretive country's weapons programs. The black circle in the center of the image is a new launch pad. The rectangular buildings at center left and upper right are fuel storage facilities. (AP Photo/DigitalGlobe)
