powerful, much more difficult to make than atomic bombs. through the day, we have seen the south koreans begin to cast doueds on whether there is some confirmation of this. the north came out in early december, december 10th and said it will hydrogen bomb capabilities. that claim was widely dismissed by the international community but we saw a handwritten note from kim jong-un are a hydrogen test after making that claim. this test has taken neighbors here in the region by surprise. >> seth, how do we interpret this move? what does it mean?
>> reporter: well, it would be a major, major step forward. we were in north korea in october and we had seen really what -- what apparently was a warming in relations between china, the major ally of the north and north korea. china sent a top government official to a military parade that we attended. china has really been pushing nonproliferation issues here on the korean pens will and a major al lip. it appeared the two were getting closer and the relations were warming but china condemned these tests today, as has south korea and japan. it would be a major step back for stability in the region. >> indeed. seth doane in beijing, thank you.

restocking food a snap. this is the "cbs morning news." a golf ball. i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke.
you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us.
ask your doctor about xarelto®. you can't breathed. through your nose. suddenly, you're a mouthbreather. well, just put on a breathe right strip which instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight mouthbreathers. breathe right a run-away baggage cart is blamed for trouble at seattle-tacoma international airport. officials say the driver climbed off the cart to put a bag on the plane but the brake wasn't set. it rolled away and hit the jet's engine. no one was hurt. state of emergency in flint, michigan, over tainted water. a suspect in the murder of a
