Intelligence collected by U.S. agencies showed, however, that senior North Korean officials have discussed plans to deceive Washington about the number of nuclear warheads and missiles they possess, as well as the types and number of facilities, and to rebuff global inspectors, according to the Post.

USA spy agencies say new satellite images indicate that North Korea is making missiles at the same factory that produced the country's first intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States.

The Sanumdong factory had produced two of North Korea's ICBMs including the Hwasong-15, which is theoretically capable of reaching the US East Coast.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un also vowed during the June 12 summit with US President Donald Trump in Singapore to work toward denuclearization, but there has not been a concrete agreement to accomplish that goal.

North Korea has returned 55 boxes believed to contain the remains of USA troops killed during the Korean War, but included just one military identification tag, U.S. officials say.

So we got our hostages back, but they've blown up one of their sites, one of their testing sites, their primary testing site, in fact some people say their only testing site, they are getting rid of a missile, which isn't in the document, that was done afterwards, they're getting rid of a missile testing site - they're doing so much now.

At a Senate hearing last week, Pompeo refuted claims that the U.S, was being played by North Korea.

The Trump administration, as part of the Singapore agreement, is pursuing discussions with North Korea on resuming those "field activities", for which past administrations have paid millions of dollars in donated vehicles, equipment, food and cash at the request of the North Koreans.

Facebook finally suspends Alex Jones and Infowars for hate speech
A request to Jones for comment was not immediately returned. "All four videos have been removed from Facebook". Facebook has made it crystal clear that if the posts incite violence or misinformation, it would be removed.

The North demonstrated sharp progress in its program previous year when it test-fired numerous missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test.

Critics caution the move is largely symbolic, since the facility can easily be rebuilt.

Last week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was forced to admit that North Korea was continuing to produce nuclear fissile material, though he insisted that "progress is happening".

It is unclear how the U.S. has already determined they are likely to be American.

The Pentagon estimates that almost 7,700 USA troops are unaccounted for from the war; among them are 5,300 believed to have been killed north of the 38th parallel, which largely follows the boundary between North and South Korea.

The remains were then moved in gray vans to an airfield where US and South Korean soldiers loaded them one by one into two transport planes. It has in the past two years quickly advanced its nuclear programme.

Sohae has been the main site for North Korea's satellite launches since 2012.

The signs of new activity at the factory came as generals from the rival Koreas met at their shared border for talks meant to ease a decades-long military standoff, according to Seoul officials. "North Korea is not negotiating to give up their nuclear weapons", Lewis said.
