Has N.Korea been caught red-handed running secret nuclear program?
PYONGYANG - A US-based research institute claims to have identified the location of a secret plant in North Korea which might be a part the country's illicit nuclear program.

The Institute for Science and International Security, in its report, said that a gas centrifuge plant, located near an air force base around 45 kilometres west of Yongbyon city, was potentially being used to enrich uranium by the belligerent South Pacific country. The institute claimed to have obtained the information from unnamed Chinese and Korean sources.

The ISIS report added that identification of the secret nuclear plants could be a critical success in terms of dismantling North Korea's war plans.

The report further claimed that the gas plant had once held at least 200 centrifuges, however, it was not clear if it was still functional or part of country's greater nuclear plants network.

Earlier, North Korea had confirmed the existence a gas centrifuge enrichment program at Yongbyon nuclear complex in 2010, however, it had categorically denied the charge that it was part of its large-scale nuclear program.

ISLAMABAD – Pakistani rupee finally ended its losing streak against US dollar on Tuesday, gaining Rs4.43 after massive depreciation over the last week.

During the intra-day trading, the rupee was hovering at 266.75 with an appreciation of around 1.07 percent as talks between Pakistan and IMF underway for a stalled bailout programme.

Earlier on Monday, the rupee plunged by Rs7 and the greenback touched all-time high of Rs272. Last week, the local currency dropped by Rs24.54 in the interbank market – the largest single-day depreciation in more than two decades.

Finance experts linked the rupee’s recovery to exporters offloading some of their proceeds as remittances and export continued days after dollar cap was removed.

The country of over 220 million is facing a worst economic crisis with the forex reserved held by the country’s central bank remaining at critical $3.68 billion which were not enough to cover a month's import.
