Scores of military vehicles seen by NK News on Thursday evening in Pyongyang

PYONGYANG – Preparations for a military parade in Pyongyang were clearly visible on Thursday evening, with NK News observing scores of military vehicles driving slowly along closed off roads across the center of the city.

The preparations come amid speculation in South Korean media on whether or not the North will conduct a military parade on Saturday and growing suspicions that if one goes ahead, Pyongyang might use it to showcase brand new missile technology.
