A team of inspectors from the United States, China and Russia headed Wednesday to North Korea's main nuclear facilities to study how to disable them so Pyongyang can no longer produce atomic bombs. The delegates had arrived Tuesday in the North Korean capital Pyongyang ahead of their inspection tour to Yongbyon, 100 kilometers (60 miles) north of Pyongyang, to determine how to disable facilities there under a February international accord. Their findings will be reported to chief delegates at six-nation nuclear talks, which are expected to convene later this month to finalize a timeline for further steps in the North's nuclear disarmament.
