مساعي كوريا الشمالية لامتلاك أسلحة نووية

June 11, 2018 -- Since the U.S. removed tactical nuclear weapons from its bases in South Korea in 1991, five U.S. presidents have offered inducements to North Korea to forgo its quest for nuclear weapons.

North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear weapons test from the Punggye-Ri Nuclear Test Facility on September 3, 2017, a day after Pyongyang published photos of Kim Jong-un with what it claims is a hydrogen bomb.

The independent Norwegian Research Organization (NORSAR) determined the magnitude of the test to have been 5.8. NORSAR calculated that the yield of the test device would be about 120 kilotons -- or about eight times the power of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, and about six times that of the fifth test conducted at Punggye-Ri on September 9, 2016.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
