Pyongyang, September 3: The World leaders are again concerned with North Korea tension as it is likely to have conducted the 6th nuclear test. Just hours after the nation claimed to have developed a hydrogen bomb, two tremors struck North Korea prompting the fear of another nuclear test. U.S. Geological Survey and China Earthquake Administration confirmed the quake.

Previously, North Korea’s Central News Agency photos of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inspecting a “weapon”. It claimed the leader inspected a “super explosive” hydrogen bomb the nation developed for its intercontinental ballistic missiles. The claim is true or not, it instantly evoked tension in the US, Japan, and Korean Peninsula.

The news report described the weapon as “a multifunctional thermonuclear nuke with the great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes” to launch an electromagnetic pulse.

The last quake was felt along China’s border also. The depth of the quake was "0 kilometer," raising the fear of man-made explosion. "Possible explosion, located near the site where North Korea has detonated nuclear explosions in the past," said the USGS. Then China confirmed the second tremor of magnitude 4.6. Early evidence suggests this was the largest North Korean nuclear weapon ever to be tested, much bigger than previous five tests.

Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, "If a nuclear weapons test was forcefully conducted, it is intolerable and we strongly protest." White House also said in a statement that U.S. President Donald Trump discussed “the growing threat from North Korea” with Abe.
