BOMB TESTS TRIGGER NORTH KOREA NUCLEAR SITE COLLAPSE

BOMB TESTS TRIGGER NORTH KOREA NUCLEAR SITE COLLAPSE
Geologists believe an explosion with a yield estimated at 100 kilotons of TNT may have triggered an "earthquake swarm" over weeks.
Chinese geologists say North Korea's main nuclear testing site has collapsed under the stress of five successive bomb tests.
A mountain above the notorious facility has collapsed, a study found, rendering it unsafe for future testing and presenting a serious risk of radiation leaking.
The findings follow an announcement by President Kim Jong Un that North Korea would cease activity on its weapons testing programme.
The commitment to close the facility, made on Saturday, was welcomed by Donald Trump as "big progress", but Pyongyang has not suggested it will give up its nuclear ambitions entirely.
It also comes days before a historic summit between North and South Korea, where they are set to discuss the nuclear ambitions of North Korea.




The secretive state has taken what appear to be historic and unusual steps toward conciliation in recent weeks, telling the US directly that it is prepared to discuss denuclearisation.
The peer-reviewed study carrying news of the collapse is by China's university of science and technology, and collected data after North Korea carried out its most powerful bomb test to date on 3 September.
Such attempts have long been believed to have put the site at risk of collapse.
Geologists believe the explosion, with a yield estimated at 100 kilotons of TNT, may have triggered an initial collapse toward the test centre followed by an "earthquake swarm" over several weeks.
