Korea nuclear test site

Korea nuclear test site

China's seismic service CENC on Saturday detected a zero-depth, 3.4-magnitude natural disaster in North Korea, calling it a "suspected explosion".

China's official Xinhua News Agency said the country's seismic service detected a magnitude 3.4 quake in North Korea and saw the likely cause as an explosion.

North Korea detonated its sixth and most powerful nuclear weapon earlier this month at its underground Punggye-ri site northeast of Pyongyang, causing a quake with a magnitude of around 6.3. Website 38 North said satellite imagery taken after that test appeared to show landslides atop the site that were more numerous and widespread than after the previous five tests. -North Korea nuclear crisis, no one can be sure where this would lead or whether the North will even carry out its threat.

The exercises were meant to underscore "the seriousness with which we take DPRK's reckless behavior", White said, using an acronym for North Korea.

So, the same message the Egyptian President had delivered to the US Jewish delegation. Pictures of the meeting showed the two men seemingly conversing well with each other.

Later, the China Earthquake Administration revised its estimation, saying the quake was not a nuclear detonation. Kim had called Trump a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard" a day earlier after Trump said Washington would "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatened the United States or its allies.

Atmospheric tests of nuclear-armed missiles, as NPR's Geoff Brumfiel reported, are unsafe for a host for reasons, including the potential for sending nuclear fallout in unpredictable patterns and, if a test were to be administered by North Korea, in the direction of the U.S.

Monitoring groups estimate that the nuclear test conducted in North Korea earlier this month had a yield of 250 kilotons, which is 16 times the size of the U.S. bomb that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945.

But on the fringes of the United Nations meeting this week, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho upped the tensions further, telling reporters Pyongyang might now consider detonating a hydrogen bomb outside its territory. Since Kim came to power after the death of his father Kim Jong Il in 2011, he has ramped up nuclear and missile weapon tests.

Haley added she was perfectly happy to hand the matter to Defence Secretary James Mattis. Fox News' Greg Palkot contributed reporting to this story .

North Korea's state media issued a statement Saturday from the National Peace Committee of Korea describing Trump as "wicked" and "a rabid dog".

President Donald Trump has added economic action to his fiery military threats against North Korea, authorizing stiffer new sanctions in response to the Koreans' nuclear weapons advances. "Negotiation is the only way out and deserves every effort", Wang told the UN General Assembly. Luther Strange, Trump lashed out against Kim, telling the crowd, "we can't have madmen out there shooting rockets all over the place".

"He, who cried out the extermination of the Korean nation, is a blood-thirsty beast indulged in massacring", the Korean Central News Agency cited the statement as saying.

Textile trade contracts signed before September 11 would be respected if import formalities are completed before midnight on December 10, the statement said.

The Centre also raised concern over the long-term fallout of permitting a large number of illegal immigrants to stay in India. A Bench led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra had asked the Centre to clarify its position on the matter.

China announced on Saturday that it will limit exports of petroleum products to North Korea starting in October to implement the latest United Nations sanctions over Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test.
