North Korea is preparing to launch an intermediate range ballistic missile within the next three days, Fox Business Network reported on Tuesday, citing two unidentified US officials.

The communist nation planned the launch for between 24 and 72 hours, the cable network reported. It would be the latest in a series of launches by the isolated country this year in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions, supported by China, that ban all ballistic missile-related activities by the North.
