North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said recently that the country has developed a hydrogen bomb.

The official Korea Central News Agency carried a report that Kim made the admission during a tour of the Phyongchon Revolutionary Site, a historic place that commemorates the work of his father Kim Jong Il and grandfather Kim Il Sung, according to NBC News.
