N. Korea 'has more N-bomb material'

The analysis will raise fears that Kim intends to manufacture more nuclear weapons, days after North Korean officials described a USA training exercise near their border as a "dangerous military gambit of warmongers who are trying to ignite the fuse of a nuclear war on the peninsula".

"The Radiochemical Laboratory operated intermittently and there have apparently been at least two unreported reprocessing campaigns to produce an undetermined amount of plutonium that can further increase North Korea's nuclear weapons stockpile", the report said.

Thermal images of North Korea's main nuclear facility reveal that Kim Jong-un may have produced more plutonium than previously thought in a bid to expand his stockpile of atomic weapons, according to U.S. researchers.

The analysis by 38 North, a Washington-based North Korean monitoring project, was based on satellite images of the radiochemical laboratory at the Yongbyon nuclear plant from September until the end of June, amid rising global concerns over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

North Korea deactivated the Yongbyon reactor in 2007 under an aid-for-disarmament accord, but began renovating it after its third nuclear test in 2013.

The site's observations include the likelihood of Yongbyon's increase in the manufacture of enriched uranium, another key ingredient used by the DPRK to make nuclear weapons.

Georgia named favorite to win SEC East by media
The Crimson Tide also had the most first-team All-SEC selections with 10, a record for the Media Days poll. Auburn was a distant second with 11 first-place votes, followed by Georgia (6), LSU (3) and Florida (3).

A spate of missile tests has stoked concern that the communist state is advancing rapidly toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile that could reach the US mainland. Officials have said it is poised to carry out a sixth at any time.

The monitors said images of the uranium enrichment facility at Yongbyon may also indicate an increase in the North's supply of enriched uranium, its other source of bomb-making fuel.

The report also noted increased thermal activity at the uranium enrichment facility in Yongbyon.

Tritium is a key component used for making sophisticated thermonuclear weapons, such as a hydrogen bomb that the North Korean government claimed to have tested in January past year.

The website also raised concern that the experimental light water reactor may be operational due to an elevated thermal pattern in December and January.

The information, which comes from 38 North, a Washington-based think tank connected to Johns Hopkins University, likely means that the North can expand its nuclear weapons stockpile more rapidly than has been estimated up to now. But analysts believe it has yet to master the technology to miniaturize them to fit on a missile.
