North Korean Nuclear Test Has Caused A Seismic Event

North Korean Nuclear Test Has Caused A Seismic Event

A North Korean nuclear test has caused a seismic event in an area in the northeast of the reclusive country. Three previous nuclear tests, in 2006, 2009 and 2013, were conducted in the region.

A televised North Korean statement confirmed the test was a hydrogen bomb test. The test took place at 10 a.m. local time.

The USGS, which measured the event at a magnitude of 5.1, said it occurred 19 kilometers (12 miles) east-northeast of Sungjibaegam.

The United Nations Security Council will hold a meeting Wednesday to discuss North Korea’s claim that it has successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, two diplomats told CNN.

The United States and Japan requested the session, a diplomat said.
