N.Korea: 11 years since 1st nuclear test

From NHK

Exactly 11 years have passed since North Korea conducted its first nuclear test. Since then, the country has conducted 5 more tests. Its goal is to miniaturize nuclear weapons so they can be mounted on Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles or ICBMs.

On October 9th, 2006 North Korea went ahead with its first nuclear test at a site in Punggye-ri, in the country's northeast. The 6th and latest test was conducted last month.

The initial test involved a blast equivalent to less than one kiloton of TNT. In the 6th test, the estimated power of the explosion was equivalent to 160 kilotons of TNT. That's the strongest ever, and more than 10 times the power of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

After the latest test, Pyongyang announced that it had tested a hydrogen bomb for use on ICBMs, and that it had been successful.
