Has Kim Jong-Un tested another nuclear bomb? Magnitude 2.9 earthquake is detected near North Korean test site

A small earthquake has been detected in North Korea in the same part of the country where previous nuclear tests were conducted.
The United States Geological Survey said the 2.9 magnitude earthquake was recorded 14 miles northeast of Sungjibaegam.
It explained: 'This event occurred in the area of the previous North Korean Nuclear tests. 
'The event has earthquake like characteristics, however, we cannot conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or human-made) of the event.'   
The earthquake was described as being 'shallow', with a depth of just over three miles. 
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said earlier today that the Trump administration thinks the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear weapons is currently manageable but Pyongyang cannot be allowed to develop the ability to strike the US homeland.
'A state that has developed a pretty good ICBM (missile) capability and is developing a pretty good nuclear re-entry vehicle, I would believe ... that that state simply cannot have the ability to reach the homeland,' Kelly said.
'Right now we think the threat is manageable but over time if it grows beyond where it is today, well, let's hope that diplomacy works,' said Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general.
