NKorea Vows to Restart Stalled Nuclear Complex

North Korea says it is restarting all operations at a shuttered nuclear complex, adding to already heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula.

The official Korean Central News Agency quoted nuclear officials as saying Pyongyang would "readjust and restart" the facilities at the Yongbyon complex both to build more bombs and address the country's electricity shortage. The facility was shut down in 2007 in exchange for economic aid.

The move follows weeks of increasingly violent threats by Pyongyang, which is angry at tough United Nations sanctions passed in response to its latest nuclear test and satellite launch.
