Barack Obama arrived in Seoul Friday to growing signs North Korea was defiantly readying another nuclear test, and with South Koreans in a state of national mourning over the sinking of a ferry full of schoolchildren.The American president landed at a US Air Force base outside the capital of a South Korea still wracked with grief over the 300 people dead or missing more than a week after the disaster. Obama is expected to offer personal condolences to his counterpart Park Geun-Hye over the tragedy, but the South's unpredictable northern neighbour is set to dominate the agenda. The report echoed recent warnings from South Korea that the North might be planning a test to coincide with Obama's two-day visit.North Korea has conducted three nuclear tests in 2006, 2009 and 2013 .After a summit and a formal dinner with Park later in the day, Obama on Saturday will visit some of the 28,500 US troops stationed in South Korea, before heading on to Malaysia and the Philippines.
