North Korea tests second nuke?

US intelligence has detected an explosion of less than one kilotonne in magnitude in North Korea but has not been able to determine whether it was nuclear or not, a senior intelligence official said. (Source)

It’s not showing up on IRIS or USGS, yet.

Update. More information on this test can be found at USGS and Wikipedia.

  1. Johnny, I haven’t seen another story alleging a second North Korean test has already occurred. Instead, I’m now seeing some more serious questioning of whether the first explosion was nuclear.

    In either case, North Korea’s actions don’t seem likely to bring us closer to world peace.
