Fake evac­u­a­tion or­der

Sunday Tribune - - WORLD -

SEOUL: The US mil­i­tary said yes­ter­day it was in­ves­ti­gat­ing fake mo­bile phone alerts and so­cial me­dia mes­sages ad­vis­ing US mil­i­tary per­son­nel and their fam­i­lies to evac­u­ate the Korean Penin­sula.

The phony mes­sages were spread on Thurs­day.

Mean­while, a small 3.5-mag­ni­tude earth­quake near North Korea’s nu­clear test site yes­ter­day was prob­a­bly not man-made, the nu­clear pro­lif­er­a­tion watch­dog, China’s Earth­quake Ad­min­is­tra­tion and a South Korean of­fi­cial said.

The US Ge­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey said it could not con­clu­sively con­firm whether the quake was man­made or nat­u­ral.– Reuters
