A South Korean nuclear institute said Thursday it had detected no increased radioactivity levels in South Korea after the North's declared nuclear test earlier this week. The government-affiliated Korea Institute of Nuclear Safety has been assessing air samples since North Korea announced Monday it test-detonated its first nuclear bomb underground. "So far, we have not detected any abnormal level of radioactivity," institute official Han Seung-Jae said.
