Disgraced nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan says North Korea received centrifuges from Pakistan in a 2000 shipment supervised by the army during the rule of President Pervez Musharraf. Khan told The Associated Press in an interview Friday that the uranium enrichment equipment was sent from Pakistan in a North Korean plane which was loaded under the supervision of Pakistani security officials. He said the army had "complete knowledge" of the shipment and that it must have been sent with the consent of Musharraf, the then-army chief who took power in a 1999 coup. Pakistan has repeatedly denied that the army or government knew about Khan's nuclear proliferation activities.
