The UN nuclear agency said on Wednesday that North Korea was planning to reinsert nuclear material into its Yongbyon reactor. The move was a further sign that the North is making good on threats to restart the nuclear program that allowed it to conduct a test explosion two years ago. Mohamed ElBaradei, the chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, also told the IAEA board on Wednesday that IAEA inspectors removed agency seals from the reactor earlier in the day, according to an IAEA statement. He said the North said it would reintroduce the nuclear material within a week.
