Quake detected near NK nuke test site likely natural

Although there is room for considerable skepticism about official Chinese data - and the numbers can swing wildly month to month - there is reason to believe there has been a recent slowdown in trade, experts say.

The US Geological Survey said that the tremor hit at 1.41am (12.41am, Singapore time) with a depth of around 5km.

According to 38 North, a Washington-based web journal which monitors North Korea, numerous landslides throughout the nuclear test site have been detected via satellite images after the sixth test.

"The event has earthquake-like characteristics, however, we can not conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or human-made) of the event", said a statement released by the US Geological Survey.

But South Korea's Meteorological Administration says the quake was natural.

This latest tremor came three weeks after a 3.5-magnitude natural disaster struck near the same area. A small quake on September 23 was thought to be an aftershock of the nuclear test earlier in the month. Following the tremor, the United Nations Security Council had unanimously adopted tough new sanctions against Pyongyang. The same area experienced a 3.5-magnitude quake on September 23, which came three weeks after the 6.3-magnitude tremor caused by North Korea's hydrogen bomb test. China's exports to North Korea dropped a more modest 6.7 per cent in September, Huang Songping, spokesman for the customs department, told a news conference.

China's overall trade with North Korea for the first nine months of the year rose 3.7 per cent from a year ago to $4.03 billion, slowing 3.8 percentage point from January through August.
