On Friday, September 9, 2016, North Korea tests a nuclear warhead, proving that the country has successfully built stronger and lighter nuclear weapons with a higher impact rate. The test takes place in Pyongyang and is the site's fifth atomic test in recent history. The president of South Korea says that the testing produced the largest explosive yield ever, calling the testing "fanatic recklessness" after it causes unusual seismic activity in the area. These advances in North Korea's ability to produce nuclear weapons fly in the face of existing international sanctions.
