North Korea claims hydrogen bomb test

Asia Correspondent

There’s been widespread international condemnation of North Korea after it said it detonated a Hydrogen bomb at an underground testing facility. It was North Korea’s sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date.

The device was detonated at the site where North Korea has conducted nearly all of its past nuclear tests. The explosion was several times stronger than previous test blasts and triggered an artificial earthquake that reportedly shook buildings in China and Russia.
