N. Korea invites foreign stations to air nuclear facility destruction

North Korea has invited foreign television stations to broadcast its planned destruction of a key facility at the Yongbyon nuclear complex, South Korea's chief nuclear negotiator said Sunday. Five broadcasters - each from the five countries in nuclear talks with North Korea - have been asked to cover the planned blowing up of the cooling tower at Yongbyon, north of Pyongyang, Seoul's nuclear envoy Kim Sook told reporters. Kim said CNN was chosen as US broadcaster, but did not name the other four stations invited from South Korea, China, Japan and Russia. Pyongyang also has notified the five stations of a date for the tower's destruction, Kim said, without elaborating.
