Over in North Korea, activity has been detected around the Uranium Enrichment Plant at the regime's main nuclear complex, suggesting continued operations there.
North Korea-monitoring website 38 North suggests satellite imagery over the past year shows the light activity at the Yeongbyeon Nuclear Scientific Research Center is far more than just "caretaking".
The website jots down the date and the number of specialized railcars that had been going in and out of the area, adding that such a pattern "suggests some type of ongoing operation within the facilities, which might require the removal or receipt of some unidentified chemical agent."
