North Korea's Nuclear Testing

Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - They said they were going to do it - and they did.  North Korea detonated a nuclear device at a north eastern test site on Tuesday.  International monitoring agencies said they detected an earthquake in North Korea with a magnitude between 4.9 and 5.2.  North Korea says the test was aimed at coping with what it calls "ferocious" U.S. hostility that undermines its sovereign right to launch satellites.  Doctor Ryo Hinata Yamaguchi from the Pacific Forum of the Center for Strategic and International Studies joins us now.
