North Korea conducts sixth nuclear test

The apparent test came just hours after it claimed to have developed a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded into the country's new intercontinental ballistic missile.

According to United States, Geological Survey recorded the magnitude at 6.3 -- larger than any previous test.

It is bound to increase the tension hours after United States President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe talked by phone about the "escalating" nuclear crisis.

Earlier, Nuclear-armed Pyongyang has long sought the means to deliver an atomic warhead to the United States.

Meanwhile, the Japan government confirmed that North Korea has conducted a nuclear test. South Korea and Japan are gathering and analyzing data to confirm details of the test, which Japanese Minister Shinzo Abe said could not be tolerated.
