An international nuclear test monitoring agency said that it had detected an “unusual seismic event” in North Korea, following weeks of speculation that a nuclear test was imminent in the country. Reuters has reported a UNSC diplomat confirming that the quake was a result of a nuclear test in North Korea.

Kim Min-seok, a South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman, also told reporters that North Korea informed China and the United States of its plans to conduct a nuclear test. It was not clear when Pyongyang told Beijing and Washington.
