North Korea on Sunday conducted its sixth nuclear test, claiming it was now capable of producing intercontinental ballistic missiles fitted with thermonuclear warheads.

Several nuclear weapons states around the world carried out these experiments throughout the 20th century, but North Korea is believed to be the only country to do so after 2000.
