The tremor was recorded at a depth of six miles (10 kilometres) on the east coast of North Korea.

USGS initially recorded the tremor at a magnitude of 5.2, but it was later revised amid World War 3 fears.

China’s earthquake administration said it detected a 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Northeastern North Korea, calling it a “suspected explosion,” it has been reported.

Recent tremors in North Korea have been caused by nuclear tests, experts have said.

There are no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

South Korea’s government has said that the North may have conducted another nuclear test.

South Korean officials have claimed the quake took place in Kilju County, where the North’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site is situated.

President Moon Jae-in of South Korea called an emergency meeting of his National Security Council in response to the report.

The news comes after North Korea announced it has developed a more advanced nuclear weapon that has “great destructive power”.
