May 25, 2009 - 11:16AM
North Korea staged a "successful'' underground nuclear test on Monday, the communist state's official media said.
The North "successfully conducted another underground nuclear test on May 25 as part of its measures aimed at strengthening its self-defence nuclear deterrent in every way'', the Korean Central News Agency said.
The test will "contribute to safeguarding our sovereignty and socialism and guaranteeing peace and safety on the Korean peninsula and the surrounding region'', it said.
The four-paragraph story gave no details of the location.
South Korean officials said a tremor was detected around the northeastern town of Kilju, near where the first test was conducted in October 2006.
