N. Korea pushing fissile material output: US think-tank
(08-07 10:20)

Recent 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.
"However, without more data, such as regular steam production, it is hard to determine the operational status of the reactor and thus to estimate the amount of plutonium produced," the report said. --AFP
