UN chief Ban Ki-moon made an urgent appeal to North Korea  to refrain from "any further provocation", following reports that the increasingly isolated state is preparing another nuclear test.

Ban said the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea cannot go on like this, confronting and challenging the authority of the Security Council and the international community.

South Korea said earlier that North Korea appeared to be preparing a fourth nuclear test as well as a provocative missile launch, despite an unusually blunt call from China for restraint.

Meanwhile, Japan has ordered its armed forces to shoot down any North Korean missile headed towards its territory.
