MOSCOW, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Russia's Defence Ministry said the power of North Korea's nuclear test blast on Tuesday surpassed 7 kilotons, a ministry source told the Interfax-AVN military news agency.

South Korea said earlier on Tuesday that the size of the seismic activity indicated a nuclear explosion slightly larger than the North's two previous tests at 6-7 kilotons. The Hiroshima bomb was, by comparison, around 20 kilotons. (Reporting by Alissa de Carbonnel; Editing by Timothy Heritage)
