North Korea: Martial Law Declared Ahead of Possible Nuclear Test

North Korea: Martial Law Declared Ahead of Possible Nuclear Test

The South Korean media reported yesterday that a secret domestic security order was recently issued by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. The secret order essentially implements martial law. Reports indicate that senior North Korean security and military officials met on January 26 to discuss increasing the nation’s readiness level. Following UN sanctions that were passed earlier this month North Korean officials stated that their nuclear weapons development effort would not be deterred. Reports that additional domestic security measures are being implemented and that the North Korean military is upgrading its readiness status reinforces analysis that the country may be preparing for a new provocative action, possibly a nuclear test.
