South Korea says the North is preparing for a ballistic missile launch, possibly of the ICBM variety.

On Sunday, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or DPRK, successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test which can be strapped on to an intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM.

Initially recorded at a 6.3 magnitude earthquake originating from the North’s nuclear testing site, Japan and South Korea have confirmed the test, with the South claiming it was a 50 kiloton bomb.
