However, the South Korean experts have said that the tremor did not appear to be man-made.

The epicenter of the seismic event is located approximately 25 km away from Sungjibaegam, a town close to the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, at the depth of five kilometers.

The US Geological Survey said that the tremor hit at 1.41am (12.41am, Singapore time) with a depth of around 5km.

"The event has quake like characteristics, however, we can not conclusively confirm at this time the nature of the event".

Meanwhile, the South Korea Meteorological Administration posted on its official website that "analysis shows it was a natural quake".

According to 38 North, a Washington-based project which monitors North Korea, numerous landslides throughout the nuclear test site have been detected via satellite images after the sixth test. The seismic experts and a United Nations nuclear test ban watchdog had referred to the tremor on September 23 as an aftershock of the North's sixth and largest nuclear test.

The last time a weapon was detonated at the site, a magnitude-6.3 quake was detected. Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said last month the North could test "an unprecedented scale hydrogen bomb" over the Pacific Ocean, in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's threat to "totally destroy" the country.

These disturbances are more numerous and widespread than seen after any of the North's previous tests, 38 North has said.

The China Earthquake Networks Center (CENC) said the event may have been caused by an artificial explosion, but the Executive Secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) Lassina Zerbo said the quake was unlikely to be manmade.
