During a massive detonation that triggered a 6.3-magnitude earthquake, the mountain visibly shifted. North Korea has conducted six nuclear tests since 2006, all of them under Mount Mantap at a site known as the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Facility. Using satellite images, intelligence analysts and experts keep tabs on movement at the three entrances to tunnels for signals that a test is imminent. 38 North said the pictures showed landslides as well as numerous areas of gravel and stone fields that were “lofted” by the tremors.

AMAOBU, Nigeria ― When Ndidi Ekeanyawu’s husband saw her severely swollen legs, he would turn away.

Credit: NintendoIn a new interview, Game Freak director Shigeru Ohmori explains that the upcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon may be the last games in the Pokémon series on the 3DS.
