UNITED NATIONS - The U.N. Security Council is planning on taking further action against North Korea, calling today's nuclear test " a clear threat to international peace and security."

North Korea is calling this latest atomic test its "first response" to what it describes as U.S. threats.

They had previously conducted tests in the weeks after it launched rockets in 2006 and 2009...followed by a rocket launch in December.

This latest underground test, which set off powerful seismic waves, drew condemnation from around the world.

Even North Korea's only major ally, China, is denouncing the test and demanding that North Korea return to "dialogue and negotiation."

President Barack Obama, in a statement, says North Korea is further isolating itself and putting its people further into poverty.
