North Korea’s Nuclear Weapons Test Site Appears Dangerously Contaminated | The National Interest Blog

North Korea’s nuclear testing appears to have spread devastation for miles, according to testimony from former residents.

The Punggye-ri nuclear test site in Kilju County, North Hamgyong Province, where North Korea has conducted a total of six nuclear tests, and the surrounding area have become a wasteland. The most recent test, during which the North detonated a suspected staged thermonuclear bomb with an explosive yield several orders of magnitude larger than anything the regime has previously tested, has reportedly exacerbated the environmental degradation.
