What to do about North Korea? | North Korea

North Korea latest and biggest nuclear bomb test caused an earthquake in China and Russia – and the political shockwave has reached all around the world.

US President Donald Trump described the North as a “rogue nation” that continues to be “very hostile and dangerous to the United States”.

South Korea has started live-fire drills to “strongly warn” its northern neighbour, and the UN Security Council held its second emergency meeting in a week.

But stiff sanctions have already been imposed – without stopping the missiles being launched or the test bombs being detonated.

So, what now? And does a military response risk sparking another world war?
