North Korea (Country threat level – 3)

North Korea expelled U.N. monitors from the reprocessing plant at its Yongbon nuclear facility, the latest setback in the international community’s attempts to convince Pyongyang to discontinue its nuclear weapons program. A spokesman for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) stated that North Korea could resume production of weapons-grade plutonium at the facility as soon as next week. North Korea stated last month that it would restart the plant because the United States did not remove the country from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.
