N. Korea Claims it Can Create Miniature Nukes


North Korea says it now has the technology to build nuclear warheads small enough to fit on missiles.

That would make the communist country a nuclear threat against other countries in the region, and possibly the United States if the North could put a nuclear warhead on an intercontinental missile.

"We have had the capability of miniaturizing nuclear warheads, as well as producing multiform weapons, for some time," the North Korean military said in a statement carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency.

"We can also guarantee the accuracy not only of short-to-mid-range but also long-range rocket launches, for which we have had the technology for a long time," military officials added.

Military experts have offered mixed assessments about North Korea's nuclear capabilities, but few doubt the country has been working hard to develop nuclear weapons technology.
