TOKYO (Reuters) - Seismic activities detected at around 0300 GMT in North Korea may be the result of a nuclear test, Japan's top government spokesman said on Tuesday.

"The Meteorological Agency detected seismic activities around North Korea. There is a chance the activities are not the result of a natural earthquake," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said at a news conference.

"Judging from past incidents, this could be due to North Korea's nuclear test," Suga said.
