(Source: Associated Press/AP Online)SEOUL, South Korea - Washington's special envoy on North Korea will visit South Korea, Japan and China as fears rise that North Korea is ramping up its nuclear program.

South Korea's Foreign Ministry said Stephen Bosworth is to arrive in Seoul on Sunday for a two-day trip aimed at discussing the North's nuclear weapons program.

The U.S. State Department said Bosworth will then travel on to Tokyo and Beijing before flying back to Washington later in the week.

Bosworth's trip comes as new satellite images show building under way at North Korea's main atomic complex. Those images, along with reports by two Americans recently returned from the North, appear to confirm that the North is making good on its pledge to build a nuclear power reactor.
