GETTYNorth Korea could be making new tunnels for nuclear testing

North Korea watchdog 38 North reports there has been a “consistently high” level of activity at the West portal of the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site.

Mining carts, vehicles and personnel have been seen at the site suggesting a tunnel excavation is underway, as Pyongyang readies the tunnel for further nuclear testing.

North Korean intelligence recently reported “construction had resumed at a fourth tunnel (West Portal), making it unable to be used ‘for a considerable amount of time.’”

And the images show no new spoil has been added to the site, but presence and movement of equipment has significantly increased.

Images show activity at the west portal

The West tunnel complex has been unused as yet, and no activity has been spotted in the area over the past several months.

Five of the past six nuclear tests were conducted at the North Portal, but no vehicles or equipment have been seen there since September.

A recent report by TV Asahi claimed hundreds of North Korean personnel died after the tunnels collapsed at the test site.

The three recent tremors could have caused damage to the tunnel networks but satellite images cannot confirm this.

The images come as CNN reports Kim Jong-un could be developing bioweapons amid escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Kim is said to have sent experts around the world to get degrees in microbiology and stepped up moves to build more factories and laboratories.

And the leader of the hermit nation has steadily been acquiring new machinery that could be used to churn out deadly microbes, US and Asian intelligence officials have claimed.

US analysts are concerned the research could mean the regime is producing dangerous microbes and pathogens that could be loaded into bioweapons.
