All papers reported heavily on North Korea’s claim on Wednesday that it successfully conducted a hydrogen bomb test on the same day, highlighting the international community’s strong reaction to the fourth nuclear test by the reclusive state. The dailies said skepticism is growing about the DPRK’s claim that it conducted a hydrogen bomb test given the size of the tremor recorded by monitoring posts around the region. The South Korean government reportedly suspects that the test may have involved a “boosted fission weapon” and not a hydrogen bomb.
