Unification minister says there are signs of N. Korea preparing for 4th nuke test
SEOUL, April 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae said Monday there are signs that North Korea may be preparing for another nuclear test.

   In a meeting with lawmakers, the policymaker said that Seoul is aware of indications that another test is being planned, but he failed to go into details.

   The remarks came after a lawmaker citing unspecified reports said that there has been an increase in the movements of vehicles and personnel near the Punggye-ri test complex in North Hamgyong Province.

   The site was used for the country's three previous nuclear tests. The last test occurred on Feb. 12.
