New excavation at North Korea’s nuclear test site – government source

Current work likely not preparation for nuclear test

North Korea began new excavation at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site last month, South Korea’s Joongang Ilbo reported Friday, citing an unnamed South Korean government official.

Excavation has started at another location in addition to the three existing tunnels used for nuclear testing. The government source did not reveal the precise location of the new excavation work.
