Trump, Tillerson at odds but both right

An natural disaster detected in North Korea has sparked fears of a new underground nuclear test.

"The event has quake like characteristics, however, we can not conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or human-made) of the event".

The 2.9 magnitude quake was recorded yesterday near a site where dictator Kim Jong-un has conducted previous nuclear tests, according to an Evening Standard report.

According to a statement released by the US Geological Survey: "This event occurred in the area of the previous North Korean nuclear tests". Late last month, a magnitude 3.4 quake was detected under Mount Mantap- and there have been further small aftershocks since North Korea's sixth nuclear test in early September.
