North Korea produces miniaturized nuclear warhead, says US intelligence


North Korea is now able to make a miniaturized nuclear warhead that could be delivered by an intercontinental ballistic missile, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC and The Washington Post.

The successful miniaturization of a nuclear weapon would mark a major milestone for North Korea’s notorious nuclear program, further escalating international tensions over the country’s pursuit of nuclear-capable ICMBs and raising concerns that the secretive state is already able to reach the mainland United States with such a device.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un claimed late last month that his government had the ability to strike the U.S. mainland, following the successful test of two ICBMs.

Kim Jong Un has tested more missiles than any of his predecessors since he took over control of the country from his father in 2011
