Regional experts differed on their analysis of the tremor, with China's China Earthquake Network Centre (CENC) service calling it a "suspected explosion", while Seoul's Korea Meteorological Agency (KMA) judged it a "natural quake".

US President Donald Trump dubbed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "Rocket Man" in a speech at the UN in which he threatened to "totally destroy" the North if it attacked the US or its allies.

This week marked a new level of acrimony in a blistering war of words between Kim and Trump, with the USA leader using his maiden speech at the United Nations to warn that Washington would "totally destroy" the North if the U.S. or its allies were threatened.

The U.S. Geological Survey, however, said it could not confirm whether Saturday's seismic activity was man-made or natural.

North Korea has refused to stop its missile and nuclear tests, despite successive rounds of United Nations sanctions.

Analysts examining satellite images of North Korea's mountainous test site after the latest nuclear test said they spotted landslides and surface disturbances that were more numerous and widespread than what was seen from any of the five previous tests. Kim's foreign minister told reporters this past week that the North's response to Trump "could be the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific".

Tensions between the United States and North Korea have been escalating this year over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons ambitions.

North Korean leader Kim called Trump a what? A 'dotard'
President Donald Trump is meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday about the ongoing North Korea crisis. It also issues a 180-day ban on vessels and aircraft that have visited North Korea from visiting the United States.

North Koreans gather at Kim Il Sung Square to attend a mass rally against America on Saturday in Pyonyang, North Korea. Luther Strange, Trump lashed out against Kim, telling the crowd, "we can't have madmen out there shooting rockets all over the place".

The quake comes amid soaring tensions over Pyongyang's weapons programme, with the firing of two missiles over Japan in recent weeks and its sixth and largest nuclear test earlier this month. "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire".

The Pentagon said the aim was to demonstrate the military options available to the USA to defeat any threat.

All of North Korea's six nuclear tests registered as earthquakes of magnitude 4.3 or above.

"It is a foolish misjudgment if Trump's gang thinks that America is safe because it's far away from the Korean Peninsula".

A ban on textile imports from the North will go into effect immediately, the statement said. On Thursday, the USA unveiled its own set of economic sanctions targeting North Korea. The data comes after the United Nations Security Council unanimously voted on August 6 to impose a ban on exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood as punishment for intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.
