N.Korea Plans to Conduct Third Nuclear Test

North Korea says it will conduct a third nuclear test in response to tightened United Nations sanctions.

The official Korean Central News Agency Thursday said Pyongyang will also carry out more rocket launches. It said the moves are aimed at what it called its "arch enemy," the United States.

The U.N. Security Council on Tuesday unanimously condemned a December rocket launch by North Korea as a violation of existing U.N. sanctions.

If the new threat is carried out, it would be the third time that North Korea has conducted a nuclear test following U.N. condemnation of long-range rocket launches.
