The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has almost doubled the range of its main anti-ship rocket KN-01 which is now capable of reaching a distance of 300 km. At present, rocket installations have been already deployed in Hwangha-Namdo province on the coast of the Yellow Sea, the Seoul-based newspaper Chosun Ilbo reports Friday.
"The North has been testing those modernized rockets since 2003 and has achieved a substantial success," the paper reports quoting government sources.
