The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has developed a hydrogen bomb which can be mounted on a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Pyongyang’s state media KCNA claimed Sunday.

The KCNA released pictures of DPRK leader Kim Jong Un inspecting what it said was a new hydrogen bomb.

The announcement came amid heightened tensions after the DPRK fired an intermediate-range ballistic missile last week.
