Activity at the Yongbyon reactor site in North Korea has sparked suggestions that Pyongyang may be preparing to shut down its nuclear reactor.

According to local media reports, unusual activity has been detected by satellite and has raised hopes that the communist regime may yield to international opinion over its nuclear activities, although North Korea has already missed the first deadline agreed as part of a deal for oil and food support with the world community.
