New Leak Endangers North and South Korea

According to the North Korean government, initial repairs that were made to the crack responsible for the radiation leak in Yongbyon were “improperly completed.”

Officials say that failure to seal the crack, which has now caused a second leak, is “due to the Kim regime’s abrupt detention of the Yongbyon nuclear engineering team.”  New leadership is now working to seal the leak completely.

The government is warning citizens to remain inside, and to only drink bottled water. If anyone must go outside, officials ask that they cover skin and hair, and wear a face mask.

In an effort to stop the radiation leak, Japan is sending a response team at the request of the North Korean government. They will be joining teams from China and Russia.
