The North Korean state-run news agency KCNA said on Tuesday the country's main nuclear facility is up and running once again.
The Yongbyon nuclear facility has had a history of being shut down, only to later be suspected of resuming operations again. Most recently it was shut down in 2007, but the North Korean government promised to restart the reactor by 2013. (Video via KCNA)
The BBC cites experts who believe if the nuclear facility is restarted it has the potential to make one bomb's worth of plutonium each year.
