The legacy of the Koguryo Kingdom is a sensitive issue between Korea and China, which also lays claim to the kingdom's historic roots.
North Korea has dug a new tunnel more than 500 m deep at a nuclear test site in Punggye-ri, North Hamgyong Province, intelligence sources said Tuesday. The North is also reportedly accelerating massive excavation work and construction of a new building at its main nuclear site in Yongbyon.
"If progress goes on at the current pace, the North will have dug a cave 1 km deep, the depth where it is possible to conduct a nuclear test, between March and May next year," the officer said.
But a South Korean security official said, "The North has never admitted what it is building. We're just speculating that it's building a nuclear facility whose purpose is unclear."

North Korea's biggest newspaper, Rodung Shinmun, wrote that the Nov. 23 shelling of Yeonpyeong Island was a "provocation" to North Korea—a mirror image of recent international accusations that the North had provoked the South in launching the fatal artillery fusillade on the island.
Four more articles Tuesday on KCNA carried general criticism of South Korea, the U.S. and Japan, countries that North Korea's authoritarian regime has long portrayed as ready to invade the North at any moment. Others conveyed statements from what the North said were its international allies, such as a report of a Malta group's statement, "U.S. and S. Korean Puppet Forces' Moves for Invading DPRK Slammed."

The ministry plans to conduct a reshuffle of three-star generals later this week
Former and incumbent U.S. military officials are warning of a war on the Korean Peninsula in the wake of North Korea's recent provocations. The warning came ahead of a visit to China by a U.S. delegation led by Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg on Tuesday.
Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen on Monday said the danger of war is rising on the Korean Peninsula and that the North has raised the ante in its aggression against the South. He was speaking to U.S. troops stationed in Iraq.
William Cohen, a secretary of defense during the Clinton administration, said on a Fox News program the same day that the U.S. should increase its troops in the region at least for a while if the North keeps ratcheting up tensions.

Yeah but really... so what if they test a nuke? No big deal.
SEOUL - Kim Kyung-ji began sixth period math class Wednesday afternoon by giving her middle school students three-ply, nonwoven face masks, to use during the simulated air strike by North Korea. Kim told all 30 youngsters to wrap the masks around their ears. She instructed them to move quickly - staying low to the ground, if possible - when the siren went off.
Classroom Nos. 4 and 3 will exit the second floor before we do, Kim told them. We'll follow after that.
"Do we get any drinks or snacks?" one student asked.
"If North Korea really attacks we're not going to line up," another said. "We're just going to run."
