Chinese Worry About Fallout After N.Korean Nuke Test

Some 77.1 percent of the Chinese who live near the border with North Korea are worried about environmental pollution in their regions after the North's nuclear test in February, according to a survey.

China's official Global Times on Saturday reported that the poll was carried out among 1,033 adults in border regions. Respondents were able to give multiple answers to questions.

One resident in Yanji, Jilin Province said, "Unlike in the first and second nuclear tests, we felt the apartment building shake during the third test. We're worried that there's a higher possibility of underground water and soil pollution."
