S. Korea reports North army movements

Even as North and South Korea resumed talks Sunday, South Korea’s military is reporting that it detected unusual troop and submarine movements in North Korea that indicated Pyongyang was strengthening its capacity for a possible strike. An official from Seoul’s Defense Ministry, who didn’t want to be named because of office rules, says about 70 percent of the North’s 77 submarines had left their bases and were undetectable by the South Korean military as of Saturday. The official also says the North had doubled the strength of its front-line artillery forces since the start of the high-level talks early Saturday evening.
