North Korea readies missile, makes new threat

SEOUL, (Reuters) – North Korea said yesterday  that if the international community punishes it for next  month’s planned missile launch it will restart a nuclear plant  that makes weapons grade plutonium.

The secretive state this week put a long-range missile in  place for a launch the United States warned would violate U.N.  sanctions imposed on Pyongyang for past weapons tests.
