North Korea rocked by EARTHQUAKE amid fears of a new NUCLEAR test

There is no indication yet from state propaganda that a nuclear test has happened, or was even planned.
But today is a national holiday in North Korea – and the regime has often used such occasions for big weapons tests.

SEISMIC: North Korea has been struck by an earthquake
The quake struck a long way from the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Facility, where Kim usually detonates such weapons.
Kim Sung-han, a Seoul-based weatherman, reported the quake on Twitter saying it covered a 3km area.
Today is National Liberation Day in the North, marking the victory over Japan in World War 2.
North and South Korea's respective governments were also set up on on this day in 1948.
Analysis by officials in the South said the quake appeared to be natural.

The Korea Meteorological Administration spokesperson: "It is analysed as a natural earthquake."
According to the South's Joongang Ilbo newspaper, the tremors were centred on North Hwanghae Province.
