A 2.3 magnitude earthquake rattled North Korea early Monday.
The minor tremor was detected at 7:43 a.m. some 43 kilometers northeast of Changjin County in South Hamgyong Province, according to the Korea Meteorological Administration.
Earlier, a stronger 3.2 magnitude temblor shook the same area.
The South Korean weather agency said both quakes are believed to be the result of natural seismic activity in the area.
