Pyongyang residents were visibly moved as they learned of North Korea's latest nuclear test. Meanwhile, South Korea and governments around the world were less enthusiastic. Will the UN find an effective deterrent where sanctions have failed?
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has called President Donald Trump "deranged" and said he will "pay dearly" for his threats. The North Korean Foreign Minister later reportedly threatened to test an H-bomb in the Pacific.
The UN Security Council is to hold an emergency meeting to discuss an international response to North Korea's nuclear test. Calls for tougher sanctions have come from Europe, the US and Japan.
Chinese authorities say they have detected a magnitude 3.4 earthquake in North Korea, describing it as a "suspected explosion." South Korea, however, says the tremor was a natural event.
Pyongyang has fired an intermediate-range missile over Japanese territory for the second time in two weeks, a day after Kim Jong Un threatened Tokyo for supporting the US.
