North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un walks with President Donald Trump, left, during a break in talks at their historic US-North Korea summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore, June 12, 2018.
However, a U.S. official told news agency Reuters that a liquid-fuelled ICBM didn't "pose almost the threat that a solid-fuelled one would because they take so long to fuel".
"Jeffery Lewis, the director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, who was also quoted by the Post, told ABC News, "[The Washington Post] is reporting on a leak that North Korea is constructing one or two ICBMs at Sanumdong.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will urge Asian countries at an upcoming meeting in Singapore to enforce United Nations sanctions on North Korea aimed at dismantling Pyongyang's nuclear programme, a US official said on Tuesday (Jul 31).
Mr Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and agreed to a pledge to "work towards" the "denucleariasation" of the Korean Peninsula.

The images, first reported by the online publication the Diplomat, depict a football-field-size building surrounded by a high wall, in North Korea's Chollima-guyok district, southwest of the capital.

North Korea has threatened to attack the USA and its allies with nuclear weapons on numerous occasions.
According to the U.S. official who spoke to Reuters, one photo showed a truck and covered trailer similar to those the North has used to move its ICBMs.
Officials on condition of anonymity told The Washington Post that North Korea was intending to deceive the United States by misinterpreting the number of research facilities and warheads, and claiming that their country had achieved complete denuclearisation.

"Regime survival and perpetuation of Kim family rule" are Kim's guiding principles, he said. It has in the past two years quickly advanced its nuclear programme.

"I'm afraid that at this point, the United States, the Trump Administration is being taken for a ride", said Sen.
Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., asked Pompeo at that hearing about whether North Korea was still producing material for nuclear weapons.
The U.S., he added, has "to know what they have before talking about caps and arms control".
San Antonio Aquarium releases statement, video following shark theft
In a freaky case, two men and a woman stole a shark from an aquarium by disguising it as a baby and putting it in a stroller. Salvaggio said the group likely knew what they were doing, and that they very possibly targeted that shark specifically.
