    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has thrown a big party to celebrate the regime's latest nuclear test and honor the scientists and technicians responsible for the feat.

    At the banquet, Kim hailed the test as "a great victory won by the Korean people at the cost of their blood" and called on his people to "follow the fighting spirit and trait of the nuclear combatants," the official [North] Korean Central News Agency reported Sunday.

    Video footage was shown on a large screen at the banquet displaying what appeared to be a nuclear warhead being assembled by scientists and footage of a mountain shaking apparently due to an underground nuclear test.
