Activity detected at North Korea nuclear test site

Maybe the Heir to the throne of North Korea is getting his schooling on how to set up and detonate a nuclear Bomb !

(Reuters) - A U.S. satellite has detected increased activity at a North Korean nuclear weapons test site, suggesting it could be preparing for a third test, a South Korean government source was quoted as saying on Thursday.

The report comes after satellite images taken last month also showed heightened activity at the North's main Yongbyon nuclear complex, indicating Pyongyang was pushing ahead with its nuclear plans in defiance of international pressure.

Defense and foreign ministry officials could not confirm the report in the Chosun Ilbo daily about activity at the test site.

North Korea says its wants to rejoin international nuclear disarmament talks after a two-year boycott, which analysts said was an indication it was hurting badly under harsh U.N. sanctions imposed last year in response to its second nuclear test.
