Kim Jong-un caused multiple landslides in his own country with his hydrogen bomb test at the weekend, newly released satellite images reveal.

The landslides were triggered in the detonation area at the military base of Punggye-ri and beyond, with green mountains reduced to muddy hillsides.

North Korea’s latest test caused two earthquakes amid speculation the rock over the site had caved in, initially sparking fears radioactive material had leaked into the atmosphere.

It was later confirmed by Seoul the radiation levels were normal, but the H-bomb explosion comes after warnings the dictator’s continuous meddling with weapons could bring an entire mountain down – including one of the world’s most potentially deadly volcanoes Mount Paektu.

The underground blast on Sunday caused a 6.3-magnitude earthquake, according to the US Geological Survey, and was followed a few minutes later by another with a magnitude of 4.1.

Pyongyang said the test was of a hydrogen bomb that could be fitted onto a missile, heightening tensions over its weapons ambitions and prompting global condemnation.

The respected 38 North website, which is linked to Johns Hopkins University in the US, published satellite images taken Monday showing changes in the surface at the Punggye-ri test site where the ground had been lifted into the air by the tremors, and small landslides going into stream beds.

‘These disturbances are more numerous and widespread than what we have seen from any of the five tests North Korea previously conducted,’ it said.

‘There does not appear to be any evidence of a collapse crater, as might have been suggested from the post-test tremor,’ it added.
