Results for - People Congratulate North Korea For Their Hydrogen Bomb Test
North Korea's government bragged Wednesday that it had tested "a smaller H-bomb," calling it the "H-bomb of justice." White House spokesman Josh Earnest, however, counters that initial analysis "is not consistent with the North Korean claims of a successful hydrogen-bomb test." Earnest did describe the blast as a nuclear test, making the one this week North Korea's fourth. And Melissa Hanham, a Canadian expert on North Korea with the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, Calif., told CBC News that it was "pretty much universally acknowledged it was a nuclear test, but there's a lot of skepticism about whether it was an H-bomb test." The South Korean military also doubts it was an H-bomb test, according the South Korea's Yonhap news agency.
