SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - The Latest on North Korea’s nuclear test (all times local):

12:35 p.m.

A spokesman for the U.S. National Security Council, Ned Price, says Washington is aware of seismic activity on the Korean Peninsula in the vicinity of a known North Korean nuclear test site.

He says: “We are monitoring and continuing to assess the situation in close coordination with our regional partners.”

South Korea says North Korea on Friday conducted its fifth atomic test, producing its biggest-ever explosive yield, after monitors detected artificial seismic waves from a quake measuring a magnitude 5.

The U.S. Geological Survey called the seismic activity an “explosion” on its website.
