North Korea raises nuclear stakes (http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/4536181.stm)North Korea says it has taken steps to "increase its nuclear arsenal".
Nuclear fuel rods have been removed from a reactor at Yongbyon, according to a North Korean foreign ministry statement carried by KCNA news agency.

Removing the rods would allow them to be reprocessed in order to produce weapons-grade plutonium.

The statement comes amid an escalating stand-off between North Korea and the US, after reports that Pyongyang may be preparing a nuclear test.
