Tre­mors and land­slides desta­bilise land near North Korea’s nu­clear test base

NT News - - NEWS -

SEOUL: A se­ries of tre­mors and land­slides near North Korea’s nu­clear test base likely mean the coun­try’s sixth and largest blast has desta­bilised the re­gion, and the Pung­gye-ri nu­clear site may not be used for much longer.

A small quake was de­tected early yes­ter­day near the North’s nu­clear test site, South Korea’s weather agency said, but it did not ap­pear to be man-made.

The tremor was the lat­est in a string of at least three shocks since Py­ongyang’s Septem­ber 3 nu­clear test.
