North Korea has apparently completed preparations for a third nuclear test, possibly within two weeks, after firing a long-range rocket this month.

It relates to preparations for a test in the north-eastern town of Punggye-ri, where the North carried out two previous nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009.

A defence ministry spokesman declined to comment on the report.


A South Korean government official told media on April 8th  on condition of anonymity that satellite images showed a new underground tunnel built at the nuclear test site besides two others where the previous tests were conducted.
