North Korea says it halts nuclear reactor disablement

North Korea says it has stopped disabling its nuclear facilities and will consider restoring them. The North's Foreign Ministry says Tuesday it took the measure because the United States has failed to remove it from Washington's list of terror sponsors as a reward for disabling the facilities. The ministry said in a statement that the suspension took effect on Aug. 14 and that it has notified countries involved in international talks on its nuclear programs. Pyongyang has been disabling the facilities under a disarmament-for-aid deal reached last year.
