S. Korea Detects Magnitude 2.9 Earthquake Near N. Korean Test Site

South Korea detects a fourth small earthquake near Pyongyang’s nuclear test site.

Seoul’s weather agency reported a magnitude 2.9 quake early Friday with the epicenter located in the northeastern territory of the isolated state.


Meteorologists say the quake does not appear to be man made, and may have been a result of North Korea’s previous nuclear tests.


Experts have speculated the mountain where Pyongyang conducts its nuclear tests could explode, which could bear the risk of radioactive pollution.

Trump Sends Second Aircraft Carrier To Korean Peninsula With 7,500 Marines Aboard

‘The USS Theodore Roosevelt, a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, is en route to the western Pacific after leaving San Diego port last week.


The Roosevelt will focus on maritime security operations in the Pacific and Middle East, the US military announced.


But the £3.4billion ($4.5billion) warship, known as “the Big Stick”, has been sent to boost US defence on the Korean peninsula, according to South Korean media.


It is expected to arrive in region in the coming weeks amid fears North Korea is about to test another missile or nuclear weapon.’

North Korea has made fresh threats to attack the U.S. territory of Guam with a ‘salvo of missiles’ after a recent aviation exercise over the peninsula.

    Kim and China are pushing hoping we will once again give in and pay them to keep quite for a while. The problem is that waiting for a few more months will just make the war bloodier.
