UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is deeply alarmed at the rising tensions on the Korean peninsula, though United Nations humanitarian workers remain active across North Korea for the time being, a spokesman said on Friday.

"UN staff in the DPRK (North Korea) remain engaged in their humanitarian and developmental work throughout the country," UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said in a conference broadcast in New York. "The secretary-general remains deeply concerned about escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula."
