NKorea warns of 'second and third measures'

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) _ North Korea says its nuclear test was its ``first response'' to U.S. threats and warns it will continue with unspecified ``second and third measures of greater intensity'' if the United States maintains its hostility.

The North's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that its nuclear test Tuesday was a ``self-defensive measure'' that does not violate any international law.

The test is seen as a crucial step toward North Korea's goal of building a bomb small enough to be fitted on a missile capable of striking the United States.

North Korea's test drew immediate condemnation from Washington, the U.N. and others. Even its only major ally, China, voiced opposition.
