N.Korea tunnel collapses, 200 likely dead
user posted image
Punggye-ri in Kilju County, North Hamgyong province site is North Korea's only known nuclear test site

A tunnel at North Korea's nuclear test site collapsed after Pyongyang's sixth atomic test in September, possibly killing more than 200 people, Japanese broadcaster TV Asahi reports, citing unnamed sources familiar with the situation.

Reuters has not been able to verify the report.

About 100 workers at the Punggye-ri nuclear site were affected by the initial collapse, which took place around September 10, the broadcaster said.

A second collapse during a rescue operation meant it was possible the death toll could have exceeded 200, it added.

Experts have said a series of tremors and landslides near the nuclear test base probably mean the country's sixth and largest blast on September 3 has destabilised the region, and the Punggye-ri nuclear site may not be used for much longer to test nuclear weapons.

Like all things that North Korea does, this was done on the cheap with no regard for worker safety. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/mad.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

Yes Flin, Rocket Man and his regime have no regard for human life. It is very cheap over there.

And yes Mick it is a pity Rocket Man wasn't buried in the tunnel. It would have been a fitting end for the fat little dictator.

Just imagine what damage NK would do to those it wishes to annihilate - I am grateful that they damage has so far been contained to NK.

Jong-un will only learn the hard way, he should have been removed ages ago, the longer he is around the bigger the threat becomes.
