Cause of earthquake near N. Korea nuclear test site unclear

There is suspicion that North Korea may have conducted a new nuclear test. Seismic monitors detected a 3.4-magnitude earthquake on Saturday morning about 30 miles from where previous nuclear tests were carried out, according to a nuclear watchdog group. China's earthquake center says it was caused by a suspected explosion, while South Korea calls the tremor a natural event.
