The Pentagon says North Korea carried out another rocket engine test on Friday. Pentagon officials says the rocket engine tests are part of North Korea’s efforts to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile program. North Korea says the engine tests are part of the country’s space program. Friday’s test came as North Korea continues to condemn the ongoing joint military drills between the U.S. and South Korea. The annual drills, which began on March 1 and will continue through April, include more than 300,000 South Korean soldiers and 17,000 U.S. troops, including members of SEAL Team 6.
