Official: North Korea upgrading rocket launch site

A U.S. official believes the nation is now upgrading one of its missile launch sites to handle larger rockets.

It's the latest in a string of startling headlines from North Korea. The country has now detained two American citizens - and we're hearing reports that the leader Kim Jong-Un has sacked his uncle from a high-powered military post.

To add to the circus environment, Dennis Rodman is headed back to the hermit kingdom later this month. That's according to Paddy Power, which sponsors Rodman's trips to North Korea.

Barbara Starr is OutFront.
