North Korea has carried out its biggest nuclear-test yet. South Korean officials say it may have been twice as powerful as previous detonations, causing a 5.3 magnitude seismic event at the north main test site. Pyongyang said the test was for newly developed nuclear warhead and it was now capable of putting a nuclear device on medium-ranged ballistic missiles. The South Korean president Park Geun-hye has condemned the test as an act of self-destruction, saying it will only add to the North's international isolation. Ms Park has held emergency talks with officials and has spoken to president Obama by phone. China said it was firmly opposed to the test.
