Satellite Images Suggest North Korea Is 'Preparing For Another Nuclear Test'

It looks like North Korea could be preparing to launch another nuclear test following further sanctions being imposed on the country by the UN.

Analysis from Johns Hopkins University claims that Kim Jong-un's regime appears to be readying its nuclear test site for more detonations. The news comes after a hydrogen bomb was tested by the regime on September 3.

The news comes as Kim Jong-un's regime has threatened to nuke Japan and reduce the US to 'ashes and darkness'.

State news agency KCNA released a statement from a spokesperson for the regime, in which he said: "The army and people of the DPRK are unanimously demanding that the Yankees, chief culprit in cooking up the 'sanctions resolution', be beaten to death as a stick is fit for a rabid dog.

"There's limit to patience. Now is the time to annihilate the US imperialist aggressors. Let's reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness.

"Let's vent our spite with mobilisation of all retaliation means which have been prepared before now. These are voices of the Korean army and people.

"Also heard in the DPRK are strong accusations against the Japanese who have zealously joined in the US racket for sanctions.

"The behaviours of Japanese, sworn enemy of the Korean nation, are enraging us. The wicked Japanese should not be pardoned...

"A telling blow should be dealt to them, who have not yet come to their senses after the launch of our ICBM over the Japanese archipelago.

"The four islands of the archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche. Japan is no longer needed to exist near us."

The UN Security Council voted unanimously to impose new sanctions on North Korea following its recent nuclear test.
