Quake raises fears of 2nd N. Korea test

Update:North Korea says it conducts nuke test

TOKYO – A strong earthquake in northern Japan on Wednesday may have led the Tokyo government to suspect that
North Korea had conducted a second nuclear test.In Washington, White House spokesman Blair Jones said U.S. officials had not detected any evidence of additional North Korea testing.

“Japanese officials are now saying that this occurrence may be related to an earthquake in northern Japan,” Jones said.

The reaction to the earthquake underscored the jitters in Asia over reports that North Korea planned a second test after it announced Monday it had conducted its first nuclear test. Some analysts expect the regime to conduct more tests amid suspicion the first, relatively small explosion might have partially failed.
