North Korea is suspected of carrying out its fifth nuclear test, after an "artificial" magnitude 5.3 earthquake was detected close to its test site.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted unnamed South Korean officials as saying it was highly likely to have been a nuclear test.

Previous artificial earthquakes in the same area and of that magnitude have all been nuclear tests.

There has been no comment from the North as yet.
