North korea: The nuclear test was 16 times more powerful than Hiroshima

North korea: The nuclear test was 16 times more powerful than Hiroshima”

North Korea's latest nuclear test probably had a yield of 250 kilotons, a United States monitoring group said Wednesday - much higher than official estimates.

"The yield of the test clearly shows North Korean progress in increasing the yields of their nuclear weapons", the analysts said.

Information on variations in the earth's crust is transferred to the analysts, in agreement with the Organization of the Treaty on comprehensive ban of nuclear tests.

A more powerful quake the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization estimated to be of a 5.8 magnitude, but later revised to 6.1, is evidence the bomb could have unleashed as much as 250 kilotons of energy, significantly more than the previously estimated 100-120 kilotons.

"This large explosive yield is also quite close to what 38 North had previously determined to be the maximum estimated containable yield for the Punggye-ri test site", said 38 North.

Us officials have indicated that they continued to attempt to verify if it was a H-bomb, indicating that at this stage, " the statement of north korea, according to which it was a hydrogen bomb is not inconsistent ".

A government source familiar with North Korea affairs says that North Korea was confirmed to have sent workers into Tunnel Two at its Punggye-ri nuclear test site without protective clothing. "The work on the site could now focus on the preparation of these tunnels for new underground testing", explains the site.

Pyongyang has staged a series of missile tests in recent months that appeared to bring much of the U.S. mainland into range, followed by the September 3 nuclear blast.
