Nuclear 'coffin' may be leaking radioactive material into Pacific Ocean, U.N. chief says

Nuclear 'coffin' may be leaking radioactive material into Pacific Ocean, U.N. chief says --Cracks have also developed in the concrete after decades of exposure and there are concerns it could break apart if hit by a tropical cyclone. | 16 May 2019 | U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres raised concerns Thursday that a concrete dome built last century to contain waste from atomic-bomb tests is leaking radioactive material into the Pacific. Speaking to students in Fiji, Guterres described the structure on Enewetak atoll in the Marshall Islands as "a kind of coffin" and said it was a legacy of Cold War-era nuclear tests [by the United States and France] in the Pacific...Radioactive soil and ash from the explosions was tipped into a crater and capped with a concrete dome 18 inches thick. However, it was only envisaged as a temporary fix and the bottom of the crater was never lined, leading to fears the waste is leaching into the Pacific.
