North Korea's official media on Friday referred to a nuclear test for the first time since recent concerns that it may be planning such a move, citing a leftist South Korean group condemning the US for allegedly conducting an underground nuclear test. The US conducted an underground experiment at a testing site in Nevada on August 30. However, it was a so-called subcritical test that involves the detonation of explosives around radioactive material, and doesn't create the critical mass necessary for a self-sustaining nuclear reaction.
