North Korea has removed two medium-range missiles from a coastal launch site, indicating a lowering of tension on the peninsula, according to a US official.

Pyongyang was believed to be preparing for a launch last month, having threatened attacks in the region.

The threats followed tough new UN sanctions imposed on North Korea in March after its third nuclear test.
