United States warplanes fly near North Korea as leaders face off

What really happens in the event of a nuclear strike?

The implementation of sanctions on Kim Jong Un regime is based on the UN Security Council's (UNSC) unanimous approval to the new sanctions on North Korea to ban all oil imports and freeze global assets of the government and its defiant leader, in response to Pyongyang's sixth and strongest nuclear test explosion on September 3.

A magnitude 3.0 quake has been detected in North Korea around where a nuclear test recently took place but it has been assessed as natural, South Korea's weather agency said.

The quake also caps a week in which President Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un exchanged increasingly bellicose insults toward each other and follows a threat on Thursday by the North to carry out a significantly more risky nuclear test.

The U.S. Geological Survey, however, said it could not confirm whether Saturday's seismic activity was man-made or natural.

A Nuclear Test Monitoring Agency has reported two seismic events in North Korea.

President Trump has accused China of not putting enough pressure on Kim's regime to step back from its sabre-rattling. Satellite photos of the area after the Sept 3 quake showed numerous landslides apparently caused by the massive blast, which North Korea said was a hydrogen bomb.

North Koreans gather at Kim Il Sung Square to attend a mass rally against America on Saturday in Pyonyang, North Korea.

The flight follows a week of heightened rhetoric from Washington and Pyongyang, with Trump and Kim Jong Un trading insults. Luther Strange, Trump lashed out against Kim, telling the crowd, "we can't have madmen out there shooting rockets all over the place". "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire".

Ri said Trump's bombast had made "our rockets' visit to the entire US mainland inevitable", and linked it to the Trump's insulting shorthand references to Kim.

Nuclear tests have earlier caused earthquakes in the Communist-dominant country.

"The fire roughnecks who enjoy playing with fire, will die in fire", the news agency said.

China announced Saturday that it will limit oil exports to North Korea under United Nations sanctions over its nuclear and missile development, further reducing support from Pyongyang's last major trading partner, energy supplier and diplomatic ally.

North Korea has been working on developing missiles that can reach the United States and its allies and pair them with a miniaturized nuclear warheads.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce said in a written statement that it will restrict exports of refined petroleum products from October 1, and ban the export of condensate oil and liquefied natural gas immediately.

Under Kim Jong Un's leadership, Pyongyang carried out several intercontinental ballistic missile tests, including 20 missile tests in 2016.
