Second Nuke Test reported, but veracity doubted
Japan reports possible second nuclear test, according to the Daily Telgraph. "North Korea may have conducted a second nuclear test today, Japanese public broadcaster NHK reported, but South Korean officials quickly denied the report." But the US does not confirm the second test, citing lack of seismic evidence. It was the spuriously reported "second test" that got me thinking about suitcase nukes or at least at the prospect that the Nokors were developing small bombs. This second reported test, if real, may indcate a failure in their basic design, as it seems even less powerful thatn the first. But I'm going to wait until more information is available and keep watching the situation.
