SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korea has accepted a list of South Korean reporters to visit their nuclear testing site at Punggye-ri, a South Korean unification ministry official said on Wednesday.

The official did not say when the South Korean reporters would leave for the North.

Reporters from various news outlets in a number of countries excluding South Korea have already traveled to North Korea’s port city of Wonsan, where they are waiting to be guided to the testing site by North Korean authorities.
