North Korea Conducts Nuclear Test

From the Boston Globe:
North Korea conducted its first nuclear test yesterday in brazen defiance of the United States, China, and other world powers, which have sought for more than three years to persuade the reclusive Communist regime to give up its covert nuclear weapons program.

A White House official said late last night that the United States condemned the nuclear test and would seek action in the Security Council today.

North Korea's official KCNA news agency said the test took place at 10:36 a.m. local time today, or 9:36 p.m. yesterday in the United States
