South Korea claims North Korea digging nuclear weapons test tunnel

TONGCHANG-RI, North Korea

South Korea claims recent satellite photos show piles of dirt near the new underground tunnel. This comes as North Korea prepares to fire a long-range rocket.

Other countries say it's a cover for testing missile technology that could be used to fire on the United States; North Korea says it's merely launching an observation satellite.
