The tremors were detected in Kilju, in North Hamgteong Province, about 1.8 miles away from the infamous laboratory.

The Korea Meteorological Administration said the tremors could have been caused by a previous nuke test.

A spokesman added: “Kilju is a rocky area where natural earthquakes normally do not occur.

“However, the quake could have been caused by geological changes created from the recent nuclear explosion.”

A series of violent tremors and landslides last rocked the region following North Korea’s nuke test in September.

The KMA later confirmed the incident was not manmade – sparking fears that Pyongyang had come closer to developing a nuclear bomb capable of striking the US.

Satellite images found numerous landslides had occurred near the test site in the days following the underground blast.
