   SHOW OF FORCE Donald Trump is seeking to send an aircraft carrier in range of North Korea

The International Atomic Energy Agency, which has no access to North Korea, called the nuclear test, Pyongyang's sixth since 2006, "an extremely regrettable act" that was "in complete disregard of the repeated demands of the international community".

Seismic activity originating in North Korea indicating a possible nuclear test was detected shortly after noon Japan time.

"North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test", he tweeted. "We thought it might have been an quake", said Bai Jin, sitting in an outdoor square near Starbucks with his grandson.

Japan responded immediately to the suspected nuclear test with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe calling a national security meeting.

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 3, 2017North Korean state television earlier in the day described a test of a miniaturized hydrogen bomb capable of fitting on an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) as a "perfect success" and a "meaningful" step forward.

North Korea's actions create a potentially embarrassing situation for Xi, who is preparing for a politically sensitive gathering of the ruling Communist Party in October, at which he aims to further consolidate his power.

An quake registering 6.3 was detected in the secretive state on Sunday 75km (45 miles) north-northwest of Kimchaek, where previous tests have been carried out. South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said they detected an "artificial seismic wave" at 12:29 p.m. local time.

The antagonistic country claimed on its state run news station Sunday that it has tested a hydrogen bomb.

London cricket stadium evacuated after arrow fired onto field
Play between Surrey and Middlesex was suspended as players were told to go inside, before the game was later abandoned. The Oval cricket ground has been evacuated this afternoon after reports that a crossbow bolt had landed in the ground.

As the Two-Way reported last month, USA intelligence analysts believe North Korea has already developed a warhead that can be placed on its ballistic missiles, including an ICBM capable of reaching US territory. North Korea wants to demonstrate it knows what makes a credible nuclear warhead.

Following North Korea's missile launch in July, Moon ordered for more THAAD launchers to be deployed in Seongju, North Gyeongsang Province. North Korea's previous largest was thought to be anywhere from 10 to 30 kilotons.

The H-bomb test was carried out to examine and confirm the accuracy and credibility of the power control technology and internal structural design newly introduced into manufacturing H-bomb to be placed at the payload of the ICBM.

It was at that house in Hawley, Pa., that investigators found the body of 22-year-old Jenna Burleigh, Fox 29 reported . He confessed to "elements of the crime", police told reporters, and is expected to be charged in the woman's death.

The Russian foreign ministry called for talks between all sides of the stand-off and said it is deeply concerned by the blast. The statement did not say whether the conversation came before or after the North's latest claim.

North Korea sees its nuclear weapons program as crucial to deterring any US-led attempts at invasion, making it unlikely that they will negotiate it away, analysts say.

Meantime, questions remain over whether nuclear-armed Pyongyang has successfully miniaturised its weapons, and whether it has a working H-bomb, but KCNA said that leader Kim Jong-un had inspected such a device at the Nuclear Weapons Institute.
