N. Korea claims successful H-bomb test

North Korea Reveals Shocking Images Of Possible H-Bomb Warhead North Korea developed advanced hydrogen bomb, KCNA reports

But the more pressing question surfaces: Is there another imminent nuclear bomb test in the horizon?

South Korea's military says North Korea is believed to have conducted its sixth nuclear test.

The previous explosion a year ago, presumably with a yield of 10 kilotons, triggered a 5.04 magnitude natural disaster.

The launch came as the United States and South Korea wrapped up a 10-day-long annual joint military exercise, which North Korea called a provocation.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Saturday that she backed the Trump White House in "painting a very bleak picture for the Chinese" about North Korea as tensions increase over its nuclear ambitions.

Kim met with nuclear scientists and "watched an H-bomb to be loaded into new ICBM", KCNA said.

In July, North Korea tested two ICBMs, which analysts say could put much of the U.S. mainland within range, including Los Angeles and Chicago.

Japan has concluded that the tremors detected in North Korea were a nuclear explosion, marking the sixth atomic test by Pyongyang since 2006. "This means intolerance toward new provocations from Pyongyang, but also toward a military escalation by the United States and its allies in the region", the deputy foreign minister said.

South Korea's presidential office said it will hold a National Security Council meeting chaired by President Moon Jae-in.

National Security Director Chung Eui-yong said Mr Moon will seek every available measure, including new United Nations sanctions or the deployment of more U.S. military assets, to further isolate Pyongyang.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said ahead of the announcement that a test would be "absolutely unacceptable".

North Korea Reveals Shocking Images Of Possible H-Bomb Warhead

After suggesting that North Korea's leader "is starting to respect us", President Donald Trump on Wednesday returned to his tougher line.

That sparked a fierce warning by President Donald Trump that Washington could rain "fire and fury" on the North, while Pyongyang unveiled a plan to fire a salvo of missiles towards the U.S. territory of Guam.

"North Korea today ignored the repeated warnings from us and the worldwide society and conducted a stronger nuclear test than before", Chung told reporters.

Despite the worldwide pressure, however, missile and nuclear tests have continued unabated.

Yet North Korea has continued to make aggressive military actions and tests, including firing a missile over Japan just earlier this week.

North Korea's state-run broadcaster announced the test on TV, while the Korean Central News Agency issued an unusually fast report in English calling it a "perfect success".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is seen in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang Sept. 3, 2017.

Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay, reporting from the South Korean capital Seoul, said it will be "almost impossible" for the US, South Korea and others to verify the North's claims.

North Korea triggered a new ramping up of tensions in July, when it carried out two successful tests of an ICBM, the Hwasong-14, which apparently brought much of the U.S. mainland within range.

While some experts are sceptical of the hydrogen claim, the latest announcement from North Korea has heightened political tensions, coming just days after it launched a ballistic missile over Japan and sparking global condemnation.
