IAEA Reports Syria 'Very Likely' Built Nuclear Facility with North Korea's Assistance
The International Atomic Energy Agency reports that Syria was 'very likely' building a secret nuclear facility with North Korean assistance.
The BBC reports that a confidential IAEA report stated that the reactor located at Dair Alzour resembled those of North Korea.
The building was bombed back in 2007 when Israel suspected the remote desert site to be housing a nuclear reactor.
Syria denied the charges claiming that the area in the north-east of that country was an unused military facility.
North Korea also denied its involvement.
Observers say the findings will increase pressure on the Syrian regime which faces sanctions by the European Union over its crackdown on anti-government protesters.
