Pyongyang’s residents and servicemen took part in a massive celebration dedicated to the successful test of a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded onto an intercontinental ballistic missile.

On September 6, 2017, civilians and military personnel participated in a large-scale rally at Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang, North Korea, in celebration of their country's sixth nuclear test of what many believe to be a powerful hydrogen bomb.

DPRK announced on September 3 that it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb small enough to be loaded onto an intercontinental ballistic missile. The test was the biggest North Korea has ever conducted.
