N. Korea confirms 'successful' nuclear test

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - North Korea says it has successfully conducted a nuclear explosion test aimed at examining the power of its nuclear warheads.

North Korea's state TV said Friday that the test elevated the country's nuclear arsenal and is part of its response to the international sanctions following its earlier nuclear test and long-range rocket launch in January and February.

North Korea says it will continue to take efforts to strengthen the quantity and quality of its nuclear weapons.
