Reports came from local newspaper, JoongAng Ilbo, that an explosion had been heard in the vicinity of Kaesong, which lies in North Korean territory less than five kilometers from the South.

The action comes after comments were made by top official Kim Yo Jong on Saturday warning that the inter-Korean liaison office at Kaesong would soon be 'collapsed.'

Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, made the statement off the back of activists from South Korea sending anti-regime leaflets to the North.

According to Reuters, she said: "By exercising my power authorized by the Supreme Leader, our Party and the state, I gave an instruction to the ... department in charge of the affairs with [the] enemy to decisively carry out the next action."
