North Korea reportedly has produced a compact nuclear warhead that can be placed inside one of its advanced missiles - which are already believed to be capable of reaching half of the United States.
The jarring assessment was prepared in July by the Defense Intelligence Agency, according to The Washington Post. The Post was read parts of the DIA analysis and the document was verified by other U.S. officials, the newspaper reported.
“The [intelligence community] assesses North Korea has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles,” an excerpt of the DIA analysis states.
Further, it is now believed that dictator Kim Jong Un may control up to 60 nuclear weapons.
