China's earthquake administration says a magnitude-3.4 earthquake has been detected in North Korea that was a "suspected explosion".
The 'quake' occurred at approximately 08:30 GMT (16:29 local time) near the Kilju area in the North Hamgyeong Province, reports South Korea’s Yonhap news agency. Previous earthquakes reported in recent months in the ‘Rogue State’ have corresponded with nuclear tests, including the most recent successful test which took place on September 3. If it is confirmed as a nuclear test, it would be the North Korean regime’s seventh.
Chinese seismologists said it was a "suspected explosion", the state news agency reports.
South Korea says that it could be a natural earthquake, rather than one caused by a nuclear test.
This event occurred in the area of the previous North Korean Nuclear tests. We cannot conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or human-made) of the event. The depth is poorly constrained and has been held to 5 km by the seismologist.

You have to wonder why was the United Nations formed? The world has a dangerous out of control dictator. Yet world leaders can't all come together and join forces and oust this ignorant immature mad child! They're playing Russian roulette. Countries like the U.S., Russia and China are always jockeying for power and influence in this world. It's sad they can't even come together to defeat a common enemy like terrorism!
These political leaders and dictators are deciding the fate of millions and possibly billions of people on this earth. Innocent people are being sacrificed for their ignorant and narcissistic power struggles. I'm sure it won't be in my lifetime but what's it going to take when people around the world say "enough is enough!" When are we all going to realize we're all being used like pawns in a chess game???
