Mushroom Cloud Reported in N. Korea

Blast, Mushroom Cloud Reported in N. Korea: "'We understand that a mushroom-shaped cloud about 2.2 miles to 2.5 miles in diameter was monitored during the explosion,'"

But no-one has yet confirmed that it is a nuclear blast. What other explosions are big enough to create a mushroom cloud 2.2 miles in diameter?

The explosion happened last Thursday, but was only reported in the news today, 3 days later.

Probably lots of conventional sources. If a nuclear explosion had happened, then anyone with a seismograph would know, they have a distinctive signature. Assuming there even was a mushroom cloud. I mean "a source" from the country at war with North Korea? I'm surprised they didn't mention terrorists...
