N.Korea publishes pictures of ‘miniaturized’ nuclear device

Pictures could be mockups, models, observers say

North Korean state newspaper the Rodong Sinmun published pictures of what appear to be a "miniaturized" nuclear device on Wednesday, adjacent to a Hwasong-13 (KN-08) ballistic missile that could be used to deliver a weapon.

The pictures – if true – are the first photographic evidence Pyongyang has presented related to the state of North Korea's nuclear warhead technology.
