North Korea Confirms Third Nuclear Test 2/12/13
February 12, 2013
Pyongyang, North Korea - North Korea says it has tested a "miniaturized" nuclear device in defiance of U.N. orders to stop building atomic weapons.
Official state media reported Tuesday that it was conducted in a safe manner.
This third nuclear test could take North Korea closer to its goal of building a nuclear warhead small enough to be mounted on a long-range missile.
