South Korea was considering whether to suspend a scheduled aid shipment to North Korea after the communist regime announced it conducted a nuclear test, an official said Monday. The South was scheduled to ship 4,000 tons of cement to North Korea on Wednesday, but said it will make a final decision on the shipment on Tuesday, a Unification Ministry official said on condition of anonymity since he wasn't authorized to speak to the media.
