US Senator: Syrian reactor was a proliferation threat

A top member of the House of Representatives intelligence committee said classified information being shared with members of Congress on Thursday shows that an alleged Syrian nuclear reactor built with North Korean help and destroyed last year by Israeli jets threatened to spread nuclear weapons technology.

 

"This is a serious proliferation issue, both for the Middle East and the countries that may be involved in Asia," said Republican Rep. Pete Hoekstra. (AP)
