Pyongyang has officially confirmed that it successfully carried out a new nuclear test early Friday after a seismic event was registered near a test site in the country’s northeast.
North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) announced the test confirmed that "standardized" nuclear warheads can be mounted on "strategic ballistic rockets."
