** N. Korea Vows to Restart Stalled Nuclear Complex**
North Korea says it is restarting all operations at a shuttered nuclear reactor, adding to already heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula.
The official Korean Central News Agency quoted officials as saying Pyongyang would "readjust and restart" the facilities at the Yongbyon complex both to build more bombs and address the country's electricity shortage.
It said this will include a uranium enrichment plant and a five megawatt reactor that can generate spent fuel rods laced with weapons-grade plutonium. The reactor was shut down in 2007 in exchange for economic aid.
The move follows weeks of threats by Pyongyang, which is angry at tough United Nations sanctions passed in response to its third nuclear test and latest satellite launch.
** Militants Kill 7 in Attack on Pakistan Power Station **
Pakistani police say dozens of suspected militants attacked a power station in the country's northwest, killing seven people and leaving thousands without electricity.
Officials say the assault took place on the outskirts of Peshawar, when about 50 militants, armed with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades, stormed the plant at after midnight Tuesday.
Police say the militants killed two people at the scene of the attack and abducted nine others. Five of those taken were later found dead in a nearby field. At least four power plant workers remain missing.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Power has been restored to some of the areas left dark by the raid.
Taliban militants continue to launch frequent attacks in the semiautonomous tribal regions, despite efforts by the Pakistani military to stem them.
Violence has been increasing in the northwest as Pakistan prepares to hold provincial and general elections on May 11th.
