China and Russia have joined a unanimous UN vote to impose new sanctions on North Korea after its sixth and largest nuclear test.

The council voted unanimously to back the US-drafted sanctions resolution banning exports of coal, lead and seafood.

Pyongyang has claimed to have developed a hydrogen bomb and has continuously threatened to strike the US.

North Korea is already under UN sanctions to force the leadership to curtail its weapons programmes.
