North Korea latest and biggest nuclear bomb test caused an earthquake in China and Russia – and the political shockwave has reached all around the world.
Donald Trump described the north as a “rogue nation” which continues to be “very hostile and dangerous to the United States”.
South Korea has started live-fire drills to ‘strongly warn’ its northern neighbour. And the UN Security Council held its second emergency meeting in a week.
