North Korea will likely begin disabling its main nuclear facilities around the middle of next month, a South Korean official said Wednesday. "It's expected that a disablement implementation team will go to the North on November 1 with actual disablement (beginning) in mid-November," Baek Jong-chun, senior presidential security adviser, said at a forum in Seoul. The North's Yongbyon nuclear complex is believed to have produced enough plutonium for perhaps more than a dozen bombs - including the device North Korea detonated a year ago to prove its long-suspected nuclear capability. Baek's comments came two days after South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted an official, whom it did not identify, as saying North Korea could start disabling the facilities as early as next week.
