North Korea steps up rhetoric


North Korea has said it is prepared for any attack against the country by the United States. The statement comes a day after it carried out an underground nuclear explosion.

An emergency meeting of the UN Security Council has condemned Monday's detonation of a nuclear device and has announced it is starting work on a resolution.
