South Korea said today that another nuclear test by Pyongyang was imminent, but redacted the report just a few hours later. What's going on?

Ambassador John Everard was in Pyongyang as the British ambassador when North Korea conducted its first-ever nuclear test in 2006. He spent the next two years there.

The photo The Takeaway has of the soldier guarding the North Korean border looks like Barney Fife as played by the emaciated, nervous Don Knotts in the "Andy Griffith Show."
Please somebody send the guy some bibimbap (rice) and some short ribs and tell him to relax.
