North Korea Makes Repairs at Nuclear Facility

by Associated Press posted Dec 27 2012 11:11PM
 SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Recent satellite photos indicate North Korea has repaired flood damage at its nuclear test facility and could conduct a quick atomic explosion if it chose.
 
     But analysis provided by the 38 North website to The Associated Press on Friday also shows water streaming out of a test tunnel that may cause problems.
 
     Washington and others are pushing for U.N. sanctions in response to North Korea's successful long-range rocket launch Dec. 12 that outsiders consider a cover for a banned ballistic missile test. 
 
     But there's worry that Pyongyang may respond to punishment by conducting its third nuclear test.
 
     The analysis of GeoEye and Digital Globe satellite photos from Dec. 13 and earlier was conducted by 38 North, the website for the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
