People walk near giant portraits of late North Korean leaders, Kim Il Sung, left, and his son Kim Jong Il, in Pyongyang, North Korea, Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013. North Korea appears all set to detonate an atomic device, but confirming the explosion when it takes place will be virtually impossible for outsiders, specialists said Tuesday. North Korea watchers in South Korea are speculating diverse dates for a possible nuclear test, with some predicting that could happen as early as this week and others choosing the days just before the Feb. 16 birthday of Kim Jong Il.
