Russia removed U.S. diplomats from train near secret test site accident - Ifax

MOSCOW, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Russia removed three U.S. diplomats from a train near the site of a mysterious military testing accident on Monday because they did not have special permits to be in the area, the Interfax news agency reported on Wednesday.

Russia’s state nuclear agency, Rosatom, has acknowledged that five of its nuclear workers were killed in an Aug. 8 explosion during a rocket engine test near the White Sea in far northern Russia.

Interfax cited a source as saying that the U.S. diplomats had been let go, but are regarded to have broken Russian law. (Reporting by Andrey Ostroukh Editing by Andrew Osborn)
