News Brief


Ten North Korean advisers reportedly were killed during Israel’s bombing of a suspected Syrian nuclear reactor.

Citing South Korean intelligence estimates, the Japanese broadcaster NHK reported Monday that 10 members of North Korea’s nuclear and military services died during the Sept. 6 airstrike, while another two or three survived the attack.

The CIA announced last week that Israel’s target was a plutonium reactor built with North Korean help.

North Korea was one of the first countries to condemn Israel’s attack, though it has not volunteered information on what extent it may have been involved in the Syrian project.
