Images of the alleged Syrian nuclear site

The United States has accused North Korea of aiding Syria in the construction of a nuclear reactor. Syria denies that it has a nuclear programme of any kind. The buildings in question were bombed by Israel in 2007. The pictures below show the recent history of the site at the heart of the dispute.


The site was bombed by Israeli jets in September 2007. The Syrians say the building was an unused military facility. The US alleges that the Syrians bulldozed the site after the air strike to hide its original purpose

This image taken in early 2008 shows evidence of rebuilding at the site. The US alleges that this work aims to discourage excavation at the original facility
