WASHINGTON - The United States is still reviewing data but now believes that North Korea likely test launched an intercontinental ballistic missile, two US officials told Reuters on Tuesday, in what would be a major milestone in Pyongyang's missile development.

The launch, on the eve of US Independence Day, appeared to be a test of a two-stage missile, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The United States initially concluded that it was an intermediate-range missile and the administration has not yet officially changed that assessment.
