    North Korea claims to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. If this is true, what will it mean for the rest of the world? Should we be worried?

    Should 'we' as in a citizen of the UK be worried?... no, NK doesn't have a rocket delivery system that can hit the UK.

    But... could they hit SK or Japan? Yeah... and that'd have a knock on impact on the global economy and obviously global security issues. The Japan Tsunami 2011 caused $360 billion of damage and damaged the Japanese economic recovery.

    And being in close proximity to China... 2nd biggest economy... cause for concern sure.

    Run to the hills terrified? Not quite

    If they were to bomb Japan, the fallout would cause fallout to drift over here too, wouldn't it?

    Prevailing winds are over the Pacific to my knowledge .... even the Fukishima fallout didn't cross the whole Pacific.

    One bomb wouldn't... many might... but NK has at best 10.

    And it's not for certain that they detonated a hydrogen bomb... just being cautious.

    It's not true.
