North Korea has announced that it is now in possession of a miniaturized hydrogen bomb that can be mounted on an ICBM, according to Yonhap News.

The People's Republic of North Korea (DPRK) has announced that it now has a miniaturized hydrogen bomb and is able to mount the deadly weapon on it's newly-built intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), according to a Sunday announcement by Pyongyang state media.

According to a Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) statement Pyongyang can now deploy a powerful hydrogen bomb small enough to be mounted atop one of its recently developed ICBMs, capable of striking the US mainland in minutes, cited by Yonhap.The KCNA Sunday announcement,asserted that DPRK leader Kim Jong Un observed the miniaturized nuclear weapon while visiting Pyongyang's Nuclear Weapons Institute.

"The institute recently succeeded in making a more developed nuke, true to the strategic intention of the [Workers' Party of Korea] for bringing about a signal turn in nuclear weaponization," stated KCNA.

"[DPRK leader Kim viewed] an H-bomb to be loaded into new ICBM," cited by BNOnews.com

If true, the development will increase tensions in the region already near the breaking point as Washington has postured toward military intervention with the isolated nation, against the advice of China and Russia, and many other nations in the region.

Additional details as they become available.
