North Korea has carried out a third nuclear test in defiance of United Nations warnings.

The North Korean news agency said the underground test used a smaller, lighter nuclear device with greater explosive force than before.

Observers say it could take North Korea closer to building a war-head small enough to arm a long-range missile.
