Preparations are underway in North Korea for another nuclear test.
Analysts expect the event to take place before the end of May.
The North could possibly detonate a nuclear device as early as next Tuesday, May 1, which is May Day.
May Day, also known as International Workers Day, is a major North Korean holiday, an occasion for displaying the Stalinist/Kimist country's military might.
