NKOREA PREPS NUKE TEST (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)
NUCLEAR COUNTDOWN US officials fear North Korea has placed a nuclear device in a tunnel, which could mean a nuclear test is imminent
Meanwhile foreign journalists visiting North Korea have been told to prepare for a 'big and important event'
A Voice of America journalist tweeted that US government sources believe North Korea had placed a nuclear device in a tunnel and it could be detonated as early as this weekend.
It comes after Washington-based 38 North, a website that monitors North Korea, said satellite images from Saturday showed vehicles and trailers at the Punggye-ri test site and signs that communications cables may have been laid to a test tunnel.
The think tank said water appears to be being pumped out and was draining downhill “presumably to keep the tunnel dry for monitoring or communications equipment”.
