North Korea Has Conducted Its Fourth Nuclear Test
On Wednesday, North Korea said it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. Experts are still skeptical about whether the test actually took place, with seismic activity in the region not large enough to prove a thermonuclear blast occurred. Still, North Korea's announcement of its fourth nuclear test prompted the United Nations' Security Council into an emergency session on Wednesday where it was condemned as a clear threat to international peace and security.
North Korea's Taepodong-2 missile is thought to have a range of 6,000 kilometres which would put Alaska in range of a potential hydrogen bomb, even though experts do not believe the country has developed a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a missile. Since 1945, the United States carried out 1,032 nuclear tests, followed by the USSR/Russia's 715.
