NORTH Korea could have added six nuclear weapons to its terrifying array of apocalyptic missiles in the last 18 months, researchers have warned.
The Institute for Science and International Security claims that the hermit nation’s nuclear arsenal contained between 10 and 16 weapons at the end of 2014.
And the Washington-based institute added a further chilling claim that war-crazed Kim Jong-un may not have finished amassing his haul.
The report said: “Nonetheless, this exercise, despite not being comprehensive, shows that North Korea could be significantly increasing its nuclear weapons capabilities.”

The warning comes just a week after a senior US State Department official said the tubby tyrant had ordered production of plutonium fuel to restart.
