Volleyball game spotted at North Korean Nuke site

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-39652701

US experts who analyse satellite images from North Korea say they have seen unusual activity at the country's nuclear test site: volleyball games.

The images were taken on Sunday by a commercial satellite amid speculation that Pyongyang was preparing for its sixth nuclear test at a time of growing tensions with the US.

The pictures were released by 38 North, a North Korea monitoring project at Johns Hopkins University, in Maryland.

The analysts gave two possible reasons for the unexpected activity at the Punggye-ri test site: either preparations had been put on "stand-by", or this was part of a "deception plan" by the government.

"Regardless," they said in a report, "the Punggye-ri nuclear test site appears able to conduct a sixth nuclear test at any time once the order is received from Pyongyang."

1. We played volleyball outside Basra.

We didn't look like Val and Tom though.

Wanna bet it's not regulation height.
