The problems involving North Korea are getting bigger. However, it seems the regime itself is the most affected by these problems and risk facing the worst consequences. It’s time for Kim Jong-un to do a good thinking now and make some changes before it’s too late.
Unfortunately, it appears the consequences are already being felt in North Korea. According to latest reports, a tunnel at the nuclear test site collapsed after last month’s nuclear test. Sources say that at least 200 people died as a result of the collapse of the nuclear base.
Citing unnamed sources, the Japanese broadcaster TV Asahi confirmed that 100 people died in the initial collapse around September 10. The same report informed that another 100 people lost their lives in the rescue mission.
This is not the only report regarding the incident. Several other reports are revealing that the collapse took place on October 10. instead of September. North Korea hasn’t made any official announcement about the right date of the collapse.
Kim Jong-un’s Sept. 3. test triggered multiple tremors and landslides in the area, which probably caused the collapse. Western analysts have long warned about the area not being fit for the tests, suggesting that Jong-un is about to cause a major catastrophe.
But the worst thing is yet to come. People fear that the collapse may lead to leaks of radioactive material. Nam Jae-cheol, the chief of South Korea’s Meteorological Administration, made some analysis and revealed:
“Based on our analysis of satellite imagery, we judge that there is a hollow space, which measures about 60 to 100 meters (in length), at the bottom of Mount Mantap in the Punggye-ri site. So, should another nuke test occur, there is the possibility (of a collapse),” Jae-cheol said.
When asked about the earthquake and the release of radioactive materials, he said there is a possibility that it sinks, reports Politicus Daily.
When everyone warned, North Korea refused to listen. Now, they must find a way to solve the problem.
