Here we go again. From the Kyodo News:
(Kyodo) _ North Korea has informed China that it is prepared to conduct “as many as three additional tests” following the first nuclear experiment Oct. 9, CNN television reported Wednesday.
Quoting U.S. intelligence analysts and officials, CNN and Fox News said U.S. spy satellites have detected activities which could be preparations for nuclear explosion tests at three North Korean sites.
Update: Kim Jong-il stuck his head out for the first time since the nuke test:
On Wednesday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il made his first known public appearance since his country’s recent nuclear test, attending a performance of songs praising him, the North’s official media reported.
The exact date of the performance wasn’t specified in the report by the official Korean Central News Agency, but Kim would most likely have attended the event on Tuesday evening as the country marked the 80th anniversary of the Down with Imperialism Union, a group purportedly founded by Kim’s father, the late North Korean leader Kim Il Sung.
Kim Jong-il – trying to live in the shadow of daddy.
