North Korea tests third nuclear bomb

Jump to last reply

Just seen on the news that North Korea has tested another nuclear bomb, this time a much smaller but more powerful version. The resulting blast cause a tremor of 5.1 on the Richter scale. It will be interesting to see reactions around the world, particularly from China. The timing appears to be significant as many governments in the region are in transition at this time.
