N. Korea Presents New Challenge to U.S.

The Pentagon warns North Korea the United States is capable of dealing with more than one threat at a time. The warning follows North Korea's removal over the weekend of monitoring gear from a nuclear facility. U.S. officials want the equipment replaced so it can be used to ensure the country isn't reprocessing spent fuel for nuclear weapons. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports.
