Asia Tsunami Caused by Nuclear Test - Report

Politics | January 6, 2005, Thursday // 00:00

The earthquake that devastated the Indian Ocean on December 26, triggering mammoth waves called tsunami, "was possibly" caused by an Indian nuclear experiment, an Egyptian weekly magazine wrote on Thursday.

In the suggested test, according to the Al-Osboa magazine, "Israeli and American nuclear experts participated".

India, in its heated nuclear race with Pakistan, has lately received sophisticated nuclear know-how from the United States and Israel, both of which "showed readiness to cooperate with India in experiments to exterminate humankind," the Egyptian magazine commented.

Geologists labeled that region "The Fire Belt" for being "a dangerous terrain that can move at anytime, without human intervention," Al-Osboa wrote.

The Egyptian weekly magazine concludes in its report that "the exchange of nuclear experts between Israel and India, and US pressure on Pakistan which is exerted by supplying India with state-of-the-art nuclear technology and preventing Islamabad from cooperating with Asian and Islamic states in the nuclear field, pose a big question mark on the causes behind the violent Asian earthquake."

To produce an earthquake of 9.0 like the one in the Indian Ocean, a bomb of 178 megaton would be necessary to blow off, the Russian online edition MIGnews commented. However, neither India or Israel, nor the USA disposes of such bomb. The maximum power known to be tested so far on earth was the H-bomb of 57 megaton tested by the former USSR in 1961.
