North Korea will face "increasing isolation and pressure" because of its third nuclear test, the US envoy to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said after the UN Security Council condemned Pyongyang.

Rice told reporters the 15-member body would start immediate talks on new sanctions. North Korea's actions "will not be tolerated and they will be met with North Korea's increasing isolation and pressure under United Nations sanctions," she said.
