Satellite images reveal activity at N.Korea test site

New satellite images reveal ongoing activity at North Korea's atomic test site, according to a US research institute, as expectation mounts of an imminent nuclear detonation by the isolated state. 

This photo, released by North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on January 27, 2013, shows N.Korean leader Kim Jong-Un (R) attending a consultative meeting with the government officials at an undisclosed location in N.Korea. During the meeting, Kim ordered "substantial and high-profile important state measures," fuelling speculation of an imminent nuclear test.

The images, as recent as January 23, suggest the facility would be ready to conduct a test "in a few weeks or less" once the order is given, the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University posted on its 38 North website Sunday.
