South Korea: Increased activity in N. Korea nuclear site
South Korea said Tuesday that it identified an increased activity in North Korea nuclear test site and warned that it could well be preparing to carry out a fourth nuclear test.

 

"Our military is currently detecting a lot of activity in and around the Punggye-ri nuclear test site," said Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-Seok.

 

Kim stressed that North Korea's nuclear weapons programme was at a stage where it could conduct a test "at any moment" once the order was given by the leadership in Pyongyang. (AFP)
