North Korea says will conduct nuclear test

`Reclusive North Korea said on Tuesday it would conduct its first-ever nuclear test, blaming a U.S. “threat of nuclear war and sanctions” for forcing its hand.

The statement by North Korea’s foreign ministry, which was carried on the official KCNA News Agency, was immediately condemned by Japan as called “totally unforgivable.”

Its announcement capped weeks of rumors that the Stalinist state was planning a test and came amid increasingly bitter relations with the outside world after it test-fired missiles in July.’
