Breaking: US Officials Say that Air Tests Show Some Radioactive Material Above NoKo

Fox News’ Shepard Smith is reporting breaking news that US officials have just told Fox News that some air samples do show some radioactive particles over NoKo indicating that the country did test a nuclear weapon.

I’m searching for more information.

Update: CNN now has the breaking news up on its website:

The United States now has preliminary evidence of radioactivity from North Korea’s nuclear test ground, indicating it did indeed carry out a test, a U.S. official tells CNN.

Update II: Reuters is now reporting CNN’s breaking news.

Update III: The AP reports that one test measured a type of gas present in air above the NoKo test site.

Update IV: MSNBC says that the results of one air test were consistent with an atomic blast:

The U.S. government has determined that one scientific test, among many conducted since North Korea’s announced nuclear test, was consistent with a nuclear explosion, a senior administration official said Friday night.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, cautioned that the administration has not made a definitive conclusion about the nature of the explosion.

“The betting is that this was an attempt at a nuclear test that failed,” the official said. “We don’t think they were trying to fake a nuclear test, but it may have been a nuclear fizzle — an effort that failed.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information.
