N Korea conducts 'crucial test' - state media

AKIPRESS.COM - North Korea has conducted a "crucial test" at a satellite launch site to boost its nuclear deterrent, BBC reports.

A spokesman told KNCA news agency it took place late on Friday at the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, but did not give specific details.

This is the second test to take place at the Sohae site in less than a week.

Talks between the US and North Korea about its nuclear programme remain stalled.

US President Donald Trump has refused to lift biting sanctions until North Korea fully abandons its nuclear programme.
