Kim Jong-un reportedly inspects new nuclear weapon with ‘great destructive power’ built from components produced within the country

North Korea says it has developed a more advanced nuclear weapon that has “great destructive power”, and that leader Kim Jong-un has inspected a hydrogen bomb that will be loaded on to a new intercontinental ballistic missile.

The report by North Korea’s official KCNA news agency comes amid heightened regional tension and global concern following Pyongyang’s test launch of two ICBM-class missiles in July that potentially had a range of about 10,000km (6,200 miles), putting the mainland United States within reach.
