After a series of six missile tests in quick succession, North Korea has been quieter of late, keeping up its fiery rhetoric but not launching rockets.

It is now suspected this is due to a tunnel collapse that killed 200 workers at the Punggye-ri testing facility at some point after the sixth test in September.

Experts had warned a collapse was likely if missile testing continued, but Japanese TV today reported the devastating accident had already happened.

They could not clarify when the accident and subsequent doomed rescue attempts took place.

But the deaths could spell the end for the secretive dictatorship’s nuclear programme as the test site could now be too dangerous for further launches.

Desperate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may struggle to find a new test site which will not suffer the same stresses as the facility at Punggye-ri.

One hundred people were killed when when an unfinished tunnel collapsed at Kim Jong-un’s main nuclear testing site. It is estimated another 100 subsequently died while attempting to rescue the first group of entombed workers.

Foreign experts had warned a collapse was likely, highlighting the danger of a cloud of radioactive fallout escaping from the site and spreading across “an entire hemisphere”.
