North Korea's announcement regarding a successful hydrogen bomb test has spread unrest across the globe.
The announcement confirms previous link between two earthquakes on Sunday and the hydrogen bomb test.
Sources previously stated that earthquakes were man made and possibly related to a new missile test conducted by Pyongyang.
The first quake measured 6.3 magnitude by US geological survey seems to be detected near North Korea's nuclear test site
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was the first leader to comment on the reason behind the quakes, well before Pyongyang's official announcement
Shinzo Abe, Japanese Prime Minister: "The meteorological agency detected an earthquake in North Korea. There is a chance this was not a natural earthquake. There is a possibility that North Korea forced a nuclear test."
Confirmed reports show that the latest test would mark yet another big step in North Korea's attempts to obtain a nuclear-armed missile capable of reaching deep into the US mainland.
North Korea in july conducted its first ever ICBM tests, part of a stunning jump in progress for the country's nuclear and missile program since Kim rose to power following his father's death in late 2011.
