S. Korea detects small amount of radioactive xenon

Via Kyodo News :

" A small amount of radioactive xenon, believed to have come from Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, has been detected by a South Korean detection station, South Korea's Nuclear Safety Information Center said Monday.

''Evaluation has arrived at a high possibility the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant caused by the March 11 giant earthquake had caused the xenon detection,'' a press release from the center said.

The center said the level of the radioactive material poses no concern for health and environment.

The xenon was detected from March 23 to 27 at a station in northeastern Gangwon Province."
