The NK foreign ministry told foreign journalists in Pyangyang to be prepared for a “big event” on Thursday. Possibilities are another nuclear test, a missile test launch, or some show honoring the 105th “Day of the Sun” celebration honoring Kim Il Sung, the nation’s founder on April 15.
More rash rumors abound after Pravda announced an order evacuating 600,000 people from the capital city, in expectation of some US retaliation. “Reportedly, Pyongyang's bomb shelters will not be able to accommodate the entire population of the North Korean capital. Therefore, 600,000 people - mostly individuals with criminal records - will have to leave Pyongyang to let others use bomb shelters.” Other analysts are skeptical of such rumors since there is no confirmation from any other sources.
