U.S. officials said North Korea could be using tourism money to fund its nuclear weapons program.
The Department of State updated a pretty serious travel warning Wednesday urging American citizens not to travel to North Korea.
The warning says the country funnels money from a variety of sources into its nuclear weapons program. It says it's "entirely possible" the country could be taking tourism money for the same purpose.
