UPDATE 9:28 PM EDT - The USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier Strike Group is now "on-station" and ready for action in the western Pacific (read North Korea)
UPDATE 9:48 PM EDT - Foreign media inside N.Korea have been put on buses & their phones have been confiscated. They have been issued 'PRESS' armbands and told they are being taken to a "major event." No further details about this "major event." Speculation is that they are being brought to the area of the pending nuclear bomb test. If that's true, their trip will take about 7.5 hours. The North Korea nuclear testing site is 656 km North East of Pyongyang, 121 km east of the Chinese border, and around 400 km south west of the Russian border. If it is true that the reporters are being taken to the nuclear test site some 8 hours away, we have decided to HALT updates to this article as of 10:00 PM EDT and will publish a new story as developments require."
