URGENT ¥¥¥ N. Korea test 'clear violation' of UN resolutions: IAEA

North Korea clearly violated UN resolutions by carrying out its latest nuclear test, the UN atomic agency said in a statement on Tuesday.

"I understand that the DPRK announced it had carried out a third test of a nuclear weapon, despite calls from the international community not to do so," Yukiya Amano, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said in a statement.

"This is deeply regrettable and is in clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions."
