North Korea reveals plan to dismantle nuclear test site in May

North Korea on Saturday shared the "technical measures" it will take to fulfill leader Kim Jong Un's promise to dismantle his nuclear test site this month. The process will be completed by May 25, and though most of the work will be done over a three-day span, some reports indicate Kim already began to shutter the facility this past fall.

International observers — journalists from the U.S., U.K., China, Russia, and South Korea — will be invited to watch the destruction of the site's underground tunnels and conduct "on-the-spot coverage in order to show in a transparent manner the dismantlement of the northern nuclear test ground."
