N. Korean media portrays 3rd nuke test as leader's achievement
SEOUL, Feb. 13 (Yonhap) -- North Korean media portrayed the country's third underground nuclear test as the stunning achievement of Kim Jong-un in an effort to boost the young leader's personality cult, local observers said Wednesday.

Analysts in Seoul said media outlets in the communist country such as the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), Chosun Central TV and Rodong Sinmun claimed the atomic test carried out Tuesday was a complete success, and featured many articles that hailed Kim as a hero who is victorious in every endeavor he pursues.
