  • North Korean leader Kim Jong Un provides guidance on a nuclear weapons program in this undated

North Korea says it has conducted a "successful" hydrogen bomb test, hours after two tremors were detected in the country.

A US official who studies North Korea's military and politics said that seismic data on the tremors was being analysed, although the location suggested another nuclear test.

North Korea triggered a new escalation of tensions in July, when it carried out two successful tests of an ICBM, the Hwasong-14, which apparently brought much of the United States mainland within range.

Japan Meteorological Agency also observed a magnitude-6.1 tremor in North Korea, which showed a different waveform from a natural quake around 12:31 p.m. local (11:31 p.m. ET).

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly inspected a "super explosive" hydrogen bomb developed in his nation for use with an intercontinental ballistic missile.

North Korea has conducted a sixth nuclear test, the Japanese government said, a move the United States and its allies in the region are likely to view as a major provocation.

Japan's defense minister says the larger magnitude of the quake suggests "capability significantly exceeding the last one".

US intelligence agencies have made an assessment that North Korea has constructed a nuclear weapon small enough to fit on a missile, a USA official briefed on the assessment told NBC News in August. North Korea conducted its fifth test last September.

In what could be read as a veiled warning of more nuclear tests, Kim underlined the need for scientists to "dynamically conduct the campaign for successfully concluding the final-stage research and development for perfecting the state nuclear force" and "set forth tasks to be fulfilled in the research into nukes".

South Korea's President, Moon Jae-in, has called a meeting of his National Security Council.
