N. Korea pushing fissile material output: US think-tank

Service personnel of the North Korean Army at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun in Pyongyang on July 27, 2014Recent satellite images of North Korea’s main nuclear complex suggest continued activity focused on the production of both weapons-grade plutonium and uranium, a US think-tank said Thursday. The June 30 images of the Yongbyon complex show water being discharged from its ageing five megawatt reactor — a product of the secondary cooling system, the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) said in a report. The reactor, shut down in 2007 under an aid-for-disarmament accord, is capable of producing six kilograms (13 pounds) of plutonium a year — enough for one nuclear bomb. North Korea began renovating the facility after its last nuclear test in 2013, and previous satellite images suggested it became operational in October that year.
