MAJURO, Marshall Islands (AFP) — As nuclear explosions go, the US “Cactus” bomb test in May 1958 was relatively small — but it has left a lasting legacy for the Marshall Islands in a dome-shaped radioactive dump.
The dome — described by a UN chief Antonio Guterres as “a kind of coffin” — was built two decades after the blast in the Pacific ocean region.
The article goes on to state the following:
The US military filled the bomb crater on Runit island with radioactive waste, capped it with concrete, and told displaced residents of the Pacific’s remote Enewetak atoll they could safely return home.
