Yongbyon nuclear reactor is seen in satellite imagery in North Korea, September 11, 2005. North Korea has a uranium enrichment facility at Yongbyon and the reactor has previously been used for plutonium production. Both materials can be used to make atomic bombs. Satellite imagery in 2015 showing melting snow on the buildings indicated the insides of the building may have been hot. REUTERS
