N. Korean nuke test could impact volcanic activity at Mt. Paekdu
SEOUL, Feb. 8 (Yonhap) -- A North Korean nuclear test could influence volcanic activity at Mt. Paekdu, which can lead to serious environmental consequences, local experts said Friday.

The warning comes as the communist country has threatened to conduct a "high level" atomic weapons test at its Punggye-ri nuclear complex that lies just 110 kilometers from the 2,744-meter-high dormant volcano.
