A report in a South Korean newspaper claims that North Korea will carry out two nuclear tests in two different tunnels. Newspaper Chosun Ilbo quoted a South Korean military official who spoke on condition of anonimity. He said that satellite images showed activity of a tunnel on the Punggye-ri nuclear site in North Korea, while another one to the west of the country was completed earlier this year.
“There is a chance that the southern tunnel is a decoy, but we are not ruling out that the regime will conduct nuclear tests simultaneously at both tunnels,” the official was quoted as saying. North Korea said it would conduct nuclear tests after the U.N. extended its sanctions following a rocket launch in December.
