Norway detects radioactive iodine near Russia

AFP, Oslo

Norway’s nuclear safety authority said yesterday it detected tiny amounts of radioactive iodine in a region bordering Russia after an explosion at a Russian missile testing site.

The sample was collected at an air filter station in Svanhovd, in North Norway near the border with Russia, from August 9-12.

On August 10, Russia’s nuclear agency Rosatom said five people were killed in an explosion at the Arkhangelsk site in the far north. It later said they were testing new weapons. “At present it is not possible to determine if the last iodine detection is linked to the accident in Arkhangelsk last week,” the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority said in a statement.

It said Norwegian stations detect radioactive iodine about six to eight times a year, and “the source is usually unknown”.
