UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) A U.N. Security Council committee has been told that North Korea, which has exploded two nuclear devices, may have additional secret atomic facilities, council diplomats said on Monday.
The diplomats told Reuters on condition of anonymity that the assessment was included in a confidential report prepared by the so-called U.N. Panel of Experts, a group that monitors compliance with two rounds of U.N. sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear arms program.
The report to the U.N. North Korea sanctions committee was based on conversations with a U.S. nuclear scientist, Siegfried Hecker, who saw hundreds of centrifuges used to enrich uranium during a rare visit to North Korea last year, as well as the panel's own investigations and analysis, the diplomats said.
"What the report says is that it's not operational," one of the envoys said about North Korea's uranium enrichment program. "They (the panel) are also mentioning other secret facilities."
Details about the additional secret facilities were not immediately available. Much of what is known publicly about North Korean nuclear activities is based on information about the Yongbyon nuclear complex. But United States and its allies have long suspected that North Korea has other facilities.
A South Korean intelligence official said last month that North Korea has been secretly enriching uranium that could be used to build nuclear weapons at three or four undisclosed locations.

or maybe not..
The UN has about as many teeth as the IAEA or Obammy.
One day, the world will regret allowing this cancer to metastasize.
But it will be too late...
They can sit on the beach watching the ICBMs fly by..
isn’t El Baradei, the guy in the lead to succeed Mubarak the ex-chief of the IAEA?
On top of everything else... now this!
Just think! This is in large part the legacy of Muhammad El Baradei, former head of the UN IAEA (that’s International Atomic Energy Agency for you Community College students...). A.Q. Khan ran his operations under the nose of the IAEA as well.
Imagine what he can do for Egypt if he in fact overthrows Hosni Mubarak and becomes Pharaoh himself...
What are they gonna do about it? Pass twenty-five worthless resolutions?
Deja VU.. all over again.
Groundhog Day is Wednesday. ;-)
Thank you for that timely reminder........LOL.
We could always send Bill Richardson as a Permanent Envoy and butt kisser to the Kim Dynasty..
Another laurel in El Baradei’s wreath.
So sick of hearing NK rattle their empty mess kit clammering for food. China - feed’em or shut’em up.
Same thing all the time, like they’re gonna get any food at all if they shoot a nuke at somebody. China is going broke down the road, that’s the real problem. They don’t want to give their food the the NKs.
What a bunch of yutzes, most countries can’t feed themselves. Get some cows already. Can’t fix stupid.
