SEOUL: US intelligence has detected the movement of heavy equipment in North Korea that points to possible preparations for an underground nuclear test, a South Korean newspaper said on Tuesday.

The influential Chosun Ilbo, quoting a government source, said US spy satellites had captured frequent movements of trucks in the northeastern region of Kilju, as well as the movement of cranes and other heavy equipment into the area. "US intelligence authorities believe the images and other information point to preparations for a possible underground nuclear test," the source was quoted as saying.
