U.S. think tank sees suspicious activity at North Korea nuclear site

The report on the 38 North website said that in the past five weeks, exhaust plumes had been detected on two or three occasions from the thermal plant at Yongbyon's Radiochemical Laboratory, the site's main reprocessing installation to produce plutonium. "Whether that activity ... means reprocessing additional plutonium is underway or will be in the near future remains unclear," it said.
