Defense analysts are expressing alarm over the possibility North Korea secretly is developing underwater nuclear torpedoes and mines, with plans to target U.S. aircraft carriers, according to a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

The report comes from dissident North Koreans and there is no separate Western confirmation yet.

However, the fleeing North Koreans say their nation has a special group of researchers at the National Defense Technology Institute and they are “developing underwater weapons using nuclear warheads.”

In recent weeks, North Korea has threatened the use of nuclear weapons in any conflict with South Korea.

The dissidents report that the program to develop the nuclear torpedoes and mines began in March 2009. The research is being conducted by Institute 108, a facility involved in nuclear technology development.

Torpedo and mine warfare experts from the Kusong Electronic Warfare Institute also are said to be involved.
