SEOUL/BEIJING - Movement around an atomic test site in North Korea indicates the reclusive state may stage another nuclear test, a South Korean minister said on Monday, an act that would further drive up tensions on the Korean peninsula.

The comments, made in response to a newspaper report, followed unusually harsh rebukes of North Korea at the weekend by China, Pyongyang's sole diplomatic and financial ally.

Speculation had been building that North Korea might carry out a missile test in the near future.
