S.Koreans want nuclear weapons due to North - survey
A majority of South Koreans believe Seoul should respond to North Korea's nuclear test announcement by starting its own nuclear weapons programme, a survey said on Thursday.

North Korea said on Monday it detonated a nuclear device, causing great anxiety in the South, which is still technically at war with its neighbour and directly in the firing line of the North's 1.2 million-strong army.

According to a poll by the major daily JoongAng Ilbo, 65 percent of respondents said South Korea should pursue a path to making itself a nuclear weapons power.

About as many said the government's policies of engaging their reclusive communist neighbour have failed.
