U.S. intelligence agencies evaluating North Korea "seismic event"

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. intelligence agencies are aware of a “seismic event,” which North Korea has claimed was a nuclear test, the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence said on Tuesday.

“The intelligence community is aware of a seismic event with explosive characteristics in North Korea and we are evaluating all relevant information,” the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a statement.
