US intelligence agents have reached South Korea to collect North Korea related information.

The information gathering mission includes a review, and possibly an update of emergency evacuation plans for over 200000 Americans residing in South Korea, Yonhap News reported Wednesday, citing unnamed sources at the Seoul government. 

The agents either belonging to Central Intelligence Agency or the Department of Homeland Security were dispatched early last month after North threatened to create with its missiles an ‘enveloping fire’ near the US territory of Guam. Some others arrived after Pyongyang conducted an underground nuclear weapons test Sunday, dramatically upping the ante in its military standoff with the US. 

Earlier this year, the CIA created the Korea Mission Center to beef up its intelligence on the peninsular affairs.
