Doctors from Moscow have descended on the Russian village of Nyonoksa. Nyonoksa is the closest village to the site of the explosion earlier last week involving nuclear materials that killed 5 Rosatom researches. The doctors are being flown in from Moscow and will be providing health examinations to every resident of the village.

A local woman told that military emissaries were sent to ascertain who was in the village at the time of the explosion saying “There were messengers in military uniform. They wrote down names of everyone who was here on 8 August.” adding ” We were told doctors from Moscow will come here to see them.” also reported that medical checks had never been performed in the village before, even though it is in close proximity to the weapons research and test firing range.

Norway issued a statement Thursday saying they had detected tiny amounts of radioactive iodine in the region bordering Russia after the explosion. “At present it is not possible to determine if the last iodine detection is linked to the accident in Arkhangelsk last week,” said the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority.
