North Korea has started building a fence around the site of its first-ever nuclear test, as US and South Korean authorities speculated the move may be to monitor its effects and restoring the area, a news report said Sunday. South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted an unidentified South Korean official as saying that the South has received intelligence that work is under way to erect a barbed wire fence near the nuclear site at Punggyeri in the northeastern county of Kilju where the North conducted the nuclear test detonation a year ago. The North was also boosting the number of personnel at the site, Yonhap said.
