Kim Jong Un
South Korean President Park Geun-hye said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is 'mentally out of control'.
The PM has slammed the North's latest flaunting of international law.
The blast, on the 68th anniversary of North Korea’s founding, was more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, according to some estimates.
Kim Jong Un has been purging top officials since he came to power in 2011.
North Korea has seen a rise in defections this year under Kim Jong Un’s regime, but this is the most high-profile.
The launches came days after South Korea and the U.S. announced a final decision to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence anti-missile system in the South.
The missile test follows a week of sharply rising tensions.
This is the first time the country has directly sanctioned the North Korean leader for such abuses.
“They are literally sending their human rights abuses to the EU and we’re tolerating it.”
North Korea has failed in all previous attempts to launch the Musudan missile.
