"North Korea Revealed Plutonium Samples": US Nuclear Expert Updated: 2010-02-26 00:00:00 KST

An acknowledged US expert says he witnessed North Korea's plutonium when he visited there in 2004.
During a seminar in Washington earlier this month Siegfried Hecker a Standford University professor who's also a former director of the US weapons lab in Los Alamos said his North Korean hosts showed him a small red metal box containing a piece of plutonium metal and plutonium powder.
Given the heaviness and warmth of the sample Mr. Hecker said he was sure it was plutonium and understood the gesture as a message to the US government that North Korea is serious about nuclear weapons development.
