South Korea announced an artificial earthquake tonight.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
An earthquake hit North Korea early Wednesday near the site of the nation’s previous nuclear tests and South Korean experts said the seismic activity appeared to be triggered by a man-made explosion.
North Korean state radio said Pyongyang would make an “important” announcement at 12 p.m. North Korea time, according to Seoul’s Unification Ministry, which monitors its neighbor’s media.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported the magnitude of the quake at 5.1, with the epicenter in the northeast of the country, 49 kilometers (30 miles) from the nuclear test site of Pyunggye-ri.
North Korea’s last nuclear test in February 2013 was of the same magnitude. In December, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said the country was ready to detonate atomic and hydrogen bombs, according to state media.
