North Korea said it had tested a second nuclear bomb today, a claim borne out by unusual seismic activity beneath a mountainside in the country’s remote northeast. It also reportedly test-fired three short-range missiles.

The explosion appears to have been more powerful than the 2006 test, which measured 3.6 on the scale and was estimated to have yielded about 0.5 kilotonnes (equivalent to 500 tonnes of TNT).
