North Korea 'earthquake' amid nuclear test fears

Seismic activity has been detected in North Korea, several nations say, in what could be a sign of a widely-anticipated nuclear test.

The US Geological Survey said it had detected a tremor with a 4.9 magnitude.

South Korean media also reported a "man-made earthquake" in its northern neighbour.

North Korea said last month it was planning to carry out its third nuclear test - despite a threat from the UN Security Council of "consequences".

James Kelly reports.
