The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) released a report on Tuesday that said satellite photos have uncovered possible uranium reprocessing at North Korea’s Yongbyon reactor. If such activity is indeed underway, it would suggest North Korea is preparing to create more nuclear warheads.

CSIS analyzed satellite photos taken last week and spotted “five specialized railcars near the Uranium Enrichment Facility and the Radiochemistry Laboratory.”

Past - Railcars - Movement - Material - Reprocessing

“In the past, these specialized railcars appear to have been associated with the movement of radioactive material or reprocessing campaigns. The current activity, along with their configurations, does not rule out their possible involvement in such activity, either before or after a reprocessing campaign,” the report inferred.

The satellites also spotted a large construction crane near the reactor, a tanker truck on the road leading to the facility, and “several vehicles in the maintenance area.” A shipping container was seen near the uranium enrichment plant.

Facility - Level - Activity - Spring - Years

“Elsewhere, throughout the facility, the level of activity appears to be typical of spring during the past several years,” the CSIS report concluded, backing down considerably from the sensational hypothesis of its title.

This is the latest in a series of reports from various observers who pored over satellite photos to find evidence that North Korea is preparing to engage in provocative activity that would bring a decisive halt to denuclearization discussions.

A January report from CSIS, for example, ominously created the impression of scurrilous North Korean activity at secret missile...
