A DEADLY tunnel collapse on North Korea’s missile testing site could spell the end of its nuclear programme.
After a series of six missile tests in quick succession, North Korea has been quieter of late, keeping up its fiery rhetoric but not launching rockets.
It is now suspected this is due to a tunnel collapse that killed 200 workers at the Punggye-ri testing facility at some point after the sixth test in September.
Experts had warned a collapse was likely if missile testing continued, but Japanese TV today reported the devastating accident had already happened.
They could not clarify when the accident and subsequent doomed rescue attempts took place.
