Korea: February 20, 2004


The confession of Pakistani nuclear weapons scientists that they sold nuclear weapons technology to North Korea has become even more of a mystery. When Pakistan tested a number of nuclear weapons in 1998, American aircraft collecting air samples near the tests found evidence of plutonium. But Pakistan only built uranium bombs.
