Swedish Radioactive Measurement Equipment to South Korea
South Korean officials say after North Korea’s claimed nuclear weapons test, they plan to borrow equipment from Sweden to test the atmosphere for radioactive particles.
International experts have been trying to verify whether the North Korean test really was a nuclear bomb.
The South Korean Ministry of Science and Technology says it is borrowing a xenon nuclide detector from Sweden that can detect minute traces of radioactive isotopes in the air. The device is scheduled to arrive in South Korea on Friday, and the measurements would last around two weeks.
