North Korea's military has been spotted seemingly playing a game of volleyball at the main Punggye-ri nuclear test site. The source added that Beijing is also not ruling out the beginning of May as a possible time for a test.

While North Korea lacks the capability to seriously damage the USA, the country presents an immediate threat to its neighbors.

The games could be North Korea's way of indicating that it's pausing its controversial nuclear missile testing activity - or that it's making it seem like it has.

"There's one message to North Korea: the USA is not looking for a fight..." Satellite imagery has shown volleyball being played at the camp as far back as 2006, according to 38 North, but there has never been evidence of three concurrent games before.

38 North described the site as "primed and ready" on April 12, and a United Nations representative of the reclusive dictatorship confirmed that a new nuclear test was under preparation.

"We believe that it is absolutely essential. that everybody is involved in order to make sure that everything is done so that the threat represented by the development in relation to missiles and in relation to nuclear capability - not become a threat to the worldwide community", said Guterres.

Christian McCaffrey, Leonard Fournette 'both fit' our offense — Panthers GM
McCaffrey would give the Panthers and Cam more than Fournette and it may be a little gamble, but it's worth it. That said, McCaffrey's number one attribute is his pure athleticism, which is on full display in this video.

38 North last week said Punggye-ri was "primed and ready" to conduct its sixth nuclear test, possibly to coincide with last Saturday's celebrations marking the birthdate of regime founder Kim Il-Sung.

They also said that because North Korea is aware of when satellites will fly overhead, the country could be signaling that a "decision has been made to place the test on hold".

"If we have to start looking at sanctions or other actions, we will", US Ambassador Nikki Haley told reporters.

If the North tests another nuclear device, it would be a major show of defiance by Kim Jong Un, coming after President Donald Trump's repeated warnings against his country.

On Thursday North Korean state media threatened the United States with a "super-mighty preemptive strike" that would hit the "US mainland and reduce them to ashes".

Volleyball is considered to be one of the most popular sports in North Korea, along with basketball, soccer and table tennis.
