Tens of thousands of people have gathered in a snowy Pyongyang square as North Korean officials rally support for the country's recent nuclear test. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un did not appear at the rally yesterday.
Workers' Party Secretary Kim Ki Nam told the crowd that Tuesday's nuclear test, the country's third, was a self-defensive measure against United States hostility. The UN and Washington said the launch was a test of banned ballistic missile technology and imposed tightened sanctions against the North. (AP)
