200 N Koreans killed at nuclear test site collapse – Japanese media (VIDEO)
As many as 200 workers were killed in North Korea when a tunnel under construction at the country’s nuclear test facility collapsed, according to a Japanese TV report.

Citing Japan’s TV Asahi, Reuters reports that 100 workers were affected by the initial collapse, which is thought to have occurred around September 10, a week after North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful test at the Punggye-ri test site, in the north-east of the country.

Citing unnamed sources, TV Asahi reports that a second collapsed then occurred during a rescue operation, bringing the potential death toll to more than 200. RT has so far been unable to verify these numbers.

The reports come as experts warned that if North Korea conducts another nuclear test at its mountainous test site, it could collapse the area and lead to a leak of radioactive materials.

South Korea's weather agency chief, Nam Jae-cheol, made the remarks during a parliamentary audit regarding a possible implosion at the Punggye-ri test site, where its neighbor to the north has conducted six nuclear tests since 2006.

“Based on our analysis of satellite imagery, we judge that there is a hollow space, which measures about 60 to 100 meters (in length), at the bottom of Mount Mantap in the Punggye-ri site,” South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reports.

“So, should another nuke test occur, there is the possibility (of a collapse),” he said, adding that should the test site be struck by an earthquake it could trigger the release of nuclear material.

Nam’s warnings echo those of Chinese geologists who in September reportedly warned their North Korean counterparts of a potentially catastrophic collapse of the site, should they conduct another test there.

Yonhap, Oct 31, 2017 (emphasis added): A tunnel under construction at North Korea’s nuclear test site collapsed and as many as 200 workers could have been killed, a Japanese news report said Tuesday. About 100 people were trapped inside when the unfinished tunnel at the North’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site collapsed, and an additional 100 people could have been killed while trying to rescue those trapped as a second collapse occurred, Japan’s TV Asahi reported…

Telegraph, Oct 31, 2017: As many as 200 North Korean labourers have been killed after a mine shaft being dug at the regime’s nuclear test site collapsed, according to Japan’s Asahi TV… Chinese scientists have issued… warnings, suggesting that nuclear fallout could spread across “an entire hemisphere” if the mountain did collapse.

AOL, Oct 31, 2017: Japanese media reports 200 North Koreans died in a tunnel collapse at their nuclear test site… Additionally, with the test site compromised, hazardous radioactive material left over from the blast may seep out, which could possibly cause an international incident…

Operator set to request 20 years extra for Tokai nuclear plant

Japan Atomic Power Co. is preparing to apply for a 20-year extension to operate the aged Tokai No. 2 nuclear plant beyond its 40-year life span, sources said.

Such an extension would be the first among Japan’s aged boiling-water reactors, which include those at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Tokai No. 2 nuclear plant’s reactor, which went into service in 1978, is in a heavily populated area not far from Tokyo.

The company deems the 20-year extension of the plant in Tokai, Ibaraki Prefecture, as imperative to securing a stable revenue stream, the sources said.

However, the plan is expected to bring a host of challenges to the operator.

One is how to secure funds so as to cover the costs to improve safety at the old facility required under the more stringent nuclear regulations set after the 2011 Fukushima disaster.

Another is to ease concerns of local governments of the area where nearly 1 million residents could be affected in the event of a serious accident.

The move toward the extension comes as the Nuclear Regulation Authority is set to rule that the plant has met standards set in the new regulations necessary for a restart, the sources said.

The Tokai No. 2 plant, about 120 kilometers from the heart of the capital, houses one unit capable of generating 1.1 gigawatts.

If Japan Atomic Power proceeds with its plan to apply for the extension, it needs to submit the application to the NRA by Nov. 28.

The Tokai No. 2 plant narrowly escaped a catastrophe like the one at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant when it was struck by the magnitude-9.0 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011.

It took Japan Atomic Power three and a half days to shut the reactor down when the disaster knocked out power. One of the three emergency generators installed there became dysfunctional after they were submerged by tsunami.

Some experts said it could have become impossible to keep cooling the reactor if the tsunami had been 70 centimeters higher.

Japan Atomic Power is keen to extend the operation of the Tokai No. 2 nuclear plant as the facility is the only venue that will feasibly bring it revenue.

“It has no option but to apply for the extended operation,” said an official familiar with the management of the company.

Apart from the Tokai No. 2 nuclear plant, Japan Atomic Power owns three other reactors: one at the Tokai nuclear plant, also in Tokai, and two at the Tsuruga nuclear plant in Tsuruga, Fukui Prefecture.

The one at the Tokai nuclear plant and one unit at the Tsuruga nuclear plant are on their way to being decommissioned.

Prospects for whether the company can win approval for a restart of the remaining reactor at the Tsuruga nuclear plant are bleak, as it has been reported that the facility was likely built on an active seismic fault.

If the company pulled the plug on the Tokai No. 2 nuclear plant, it would mean that it would be left with no revenue sources.

That expected management crisis could likely affect the bottom line of utilities such Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, which has a stake in Japan Atomic Power.

The Tokai No. 2 nuclear plant supplies power to TEPCO and Tohoku Electric Power Co., and although extending its operation would keep those revenue sources open, it would also come with a huge price tag.

The company said Oct. 26 that the estimated costs of the safeguarding measures for a restart of the plant will balloon to about 180 billion yen ($1.58 billion), more than double the 78 billion yen projected initially.

The total sum is expected to further increase if Japan Atomic Power chooses to operate the plant beyond the 40-year limit, according to the sources.

The plant’s extended operation could prove to be a big headache for local governments nearby.

Municipalities within a 30-kilometer radius are required to draw up evacuation plans to prepare for a contingency in the post-Fukushima crisis years.

Hammering out workable plans for close to 1 million residents in the area is expected to be difficult, the sources said.

Even the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, which oversees the nuclear industry, is cautious about the extension.

“The consequences would be too enormous if an accident did occur,” said a ministry official.

対ISIS作戦の米軍司令官 シリアにいる米軍兵士5000人と口を滑らせ 500人に訂正

Major blunder: US commander unsure if it’s 4k or 500 troops in Syria
A senior US military commander in the operation against the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL) in Iraq and Syria, James Jarrard, got into a muddle when asked about the exact number of US troops in Syria.

During his press briefing on Tuesday, the US Army major general got confused by a simple question from a journalist regarding the scale of the US presence in Syria, and needed a colleague from the Pentagon to intervene.

At first, Jarrard said that there are 5,000 US troops in the region, but immediately corrected himself, lowering the figure to 4,000.

“I think it's a little over 4,000 US troops in Syria right now that are supporting efforts against Daesh [IS], and supporting the SDF [Syrian Democratic Forces]," he told Pentagon reporters in response to a question about the number of American troops in the region.

The figure provided was several times bigger than the official data, which stunned the journalist and forced the general to apologize. He said his original answer had been a ‘slip of the tongue’ when he was asked to confirm the figure.

“I'm sorry. I misspoke there. There are approximately 500 troops in Syria,” the military official said, prompting laughter from some journalists in the room. His Pentagon colleague, who was hosting the briefing, had to clarify the numbers, confirming that that there are some 503 troops in Syria and 5,262 in Iraq.

The matter came up again during the briefing, as another journalist repeated the same question “for the sake of the record.” This time, Jarrard said that there are 503 coalition forces in Syria and said that he did not have the number for Iraq “on the top” of this head.

Washington is engaged in the military campaign in Syria that has been repeatedly called “illegitimate” by Damascus, which sees the US presence in its country as intervention.

SDF Transfers ISIL Terrorists' Family Members to Militant-Held Regions in Northwestern Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have evacuated almost 130 families of ISIL terrorists from Deir Ezzur and Raqqa provinces to militant-held regions in Idlib province, Syrian Observatory of Human Rights reported on Tuesday.

SOHR reported that 127 families of ISIL terrorists have been transferred from SDF-held regions to Idlib city and its countryside.

It added that most of the families were in Raqqa province and the rest of them were from Deir Ezzur, adding that the ISIL families were transferred by the SDF from Raqqa and Deir Ezzur to Afrin region in Western Aleppo that is under the Kurds' control and were later sent to regions that are under the control of the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at or the Levant Liberation Board) in Western Aleppo and at the last stage to Idlib province.

In the meantime, some analysts pointed to the SDF and ISIL's repeated agreements based on which the ISIL's foreign commanders have the right to move to Turkey to return to their countries via a safe routes.

Relevant reports said on Monday that Mohammad al-Shahada, a field commander of the ISIL, escaped battlefields in Deir Ezzur towards the SDF-held regions following rapid advances of the Syrian Army troops in the region.

In the meantime, the army men, backed up by the Syrian Air Force, managed to advance from their positions in the small town of Mahkan Southeast of Deir Ezzur towards the key town of Albu Kamal at the border with Iraq, capturing several positions.

The army soldiers killed or wounded a number of terrorists and destroyed their military and bomb-laden vehicles in their advances.

Eastern Syria: Senior Terrorist Commanders Continue to Escape from Battlefields towards SDF-Held Regions

TEHRAN (FNA)- Another notorious commander of the ISIL has escaped Southeastern Deir Ezzur towards the regions that are under control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) after a recent agreement between ISIL and the US-back SDF over the handover of Deir Ezzur's territories to the latter, local sources reported on Tuesday.

The sources said that Abu Khatab, one of the most notorious commanders of ISIL in the town of al-Basireh in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, has fled the battlefield towards the SDF-controlled regions.

Dissident-affiliated websites reported on Monday that almost 1,500 ISIL terrorists escaped from battlefronts in two provinces in Syria in the last 6 months.

The websites quoted well-informed sources as saying that almost 1,500 ISIL fighters, including field commanders, escaped regions controlled by the terrorist groups in Raqqa and Deir Ezzur provinces in the past 6 months.

The websites also said that ISIL's death toll rose up to 500 in September, adding that the ISIL carried out strict measures to prevent members' running away, punishing harshly those who tried to flee the battlefields.

Senior Terrorist Commander Escapes from Eastern Syria to Greece with SDF's Assistance

TEHRAN (FNA)- Militant-affiliated websites reported on Tuesday that one of the notorious commanders of the ISIL terrorist group has escaped Deir Ezzur with a hefty amount of money, heading towards Greece via the Kurdish-held territories.

The websites reported that Zia'a Mustafa al-Bati, an ISIL field commander in Southern Deir Ezzur, crossed the SDF-held regions and moved towards Greece with considerable cash.

They added that al-Bati has paid $40,000 to the human traffickers and left Syria along with another ISIL member known as Harth al-Jeihan.

Albati was one of the former members of the Free Syrian Army (SDF) in the town of Mouhassan in Southeastern Deir Ezzur that joined ISIL later.

Relevant reports said on Monday that Mohammad al-Shahada, a field commander of the ISIL, escaped battlefields in Deir Ezzur towards the SDF-held regions following rapid advances of the Syrian Army troops in the region.

In the meantime, the army men, backed up by the Syrian Air Force, managed to advance from their positions in the small town of Mahkan Southeast of Deir Ezzur towards the key town of Albu Kamal at the border with Iraq, capturing several positions.

The army soldiers killed or wounded a number of terrorists and destroyed their military and bomb-laden vehicles in their advances.
