November 1 North Korean Nuclear Site Accident
Following the October 18 tremor at the North Korean nuclear test site, new tremors characteristic of landslides were detected seismically. A series of small earthquakes that followed the September 3 test indicated the facility, built south of the Mantapsan mountain, may no longer be stable enough to conduct further tests. New reports suggest around 100 workers were stuck underground and a group that was sent to their rescue were also buried after another collapse, causing a total death toll of around 200. According to experts, the building of new underground tunnels would indicate a willingness to move the test site to another part of the mountain.
