WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is calling North Korea's latest nuclear test a "highly provocative act" that threatens U.S. security and international peace.
President Barack Obama is promising to "continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies" and urge "swift and credible action by the international community."
North Korea says it successfully detonated a miniaturized nuclear device at a northeastern test site today, defying U.N. Security Council orders to shut down atomic activity or face more sanctions and international isolation.
The U.N. Security Council will hold an emergency meeting this morning.
