China Takes Responsibility For "Explosion" Near North Korean Border;

• by Tyler Durdan

Update: Chinese authorities are taking responsibility for Monday's blast, claiming it happened on their side of the border. Reporters pointed out that the magnitude of the blast was much smaller than a nuclear test, and Chinese authorities have advised that this was not a nuclear test.

Chinese authorities said this is a magnitude 1.3 event at zero depth on the Chinese side of the border. It's not a nuclear test.

Construction blasts of a certain scale can have bigger readings than a 1.3 - there was an instance a few yrs ago when such a blast created a 2+ reading in NK territory.

Last North Korea nuclear test had a reading of ~6.1 - that's much, much more powerfu;

As one of the reporters who broke the news said, North Korean wouldn't dare embarrassing the Chinese with a rogue nuclear test so soon after the announcement of President Xi's historic visit.
