North Korea says conducted ‘successful’ H-bomb test

North Korea said Wednesday it had carried out a “successful” hydrogen bomb test, a claim that — if true — massively raises the stakes over the hermit state’s banned nuclear programme. Neighbouring South Korea’s National Security Council “strongly condemned” the test, while Japanese Prime Minister described it as a “great threat” that represented a gross violation of UN Security Council resolutions. “The republic’s first hydrogen bomb test has been successfully performed at 10:00am (0330 GMT),” North Korean state television announced.
