UN inspectors headed to North Korea's key nuclear reactor Thursday for the first time since 2002 to discuss the country's plans to shut the plutonium-producing facility under an international accord. The Yongbyon reactor, about 100 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of the North Korean capital Pyongyang, is at the center of international efforts to stop the communist nation's nuclear program. North Korea carried out its first atomic test explosion in October. "We go to see the facilities and continue our discussions in more details," Olli Heinonen, deputy director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said in footage shot by APTN at his Pyongyang hotel before he departed for the Yongbyon complex.
