WASHINGTON- North Korea has taken two Musudan missiles off launch-ready status and moved them from their position on the country's east coast, US officials told Reuters on Monday, after weeks of concern that Pyongyang was poised for a test-launch.

The United States did not believe the missiles were moved to an alternate launch site and were instead in a non-operational location, one of the US officials said. The official did not elaborate.
