US Received Prior Notice of North Korea Test


Washington announced on Tuesday that the US State Department was informed by North Korea of its intention to test a nuclear device, but that they did not know exactly when the test would be carried out. 

"The DPRK did inform us at the State Department of their intention to conduct a nuclear test, without citing any specific timing," department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said, using North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
