An accident would mean it didn't explode.. I call successful test..
On the plots explosions don't have a ramp up to the wave.. They just start off at 4.9 or whatever they are saying it is.. That's how you tell if it's a quake of not.

the party leadership promised to "stage a high-intensity, all-out action, and maximize its preparation ... so that just after an order is issued, we can destroy and sweep America and the South Korean puppet army, and achieve the historic achievement of reunified Korea."

This might actually be an accident. A nuclear test site is VERY close to where the actual earth quake happened. Roughly 4 miles away from where USGS says the epicenter was. That is WAY to close to home for a test. Even if it was underground.
Maybe something went wrong? Successful test or Nuclear accident this doesn't look good either way.
