Russia takes security measures after N.Korea test: report

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia is taking preventative measures, including military ones, after North Korea tested an atomic bomb, Interfax news agency quoted an unidentified official in Russia’s security services as saying on Wednesday.

The official said the measures — which did not include troop movements — were needed in case a nuclear war broke out on the Korean peninsula, Interfax reported.
