PUNGGYE-NI NUCLEAR TEST FACILITY, NORTH KOREA-OCTOBER 29, 2012: This is a satellite image of the Punggye-ni Nuclear Test Facility in North Korea collected on October 29, 2012 confirms reports that new construction is underway within the facility. Piles of dirt and other materials, called spoils, can be seen in the image. These spoil piles are an indication that a new tunnel is being prepared for potential future nuclear tests. Similar activity was observed just before each of the previous nuclear weapons tests. Additionally, a large portion of the spoils pile and some of the road was washed away by seasonal flooding.
