North Korea says it conducted underwater nuclear drone test

North Korea said on Friday that it had conducted tests of an underwater nuclear weapons system.

State-run agency KCNA reported that the test of the "Haeil-5-23" drone system was conducted off its east coast without specifying when the tests took place.

The reported weapons test could not be independently verified, but analysts have questioned whether Pyongyang does indeed have such a weapon.
