Intelligence analysts study size and type of detonation by North Korea

  Intelligence analysts study size and type of detonation by North Korea U.S. and international intelligence analysts will pore over all aspects of North Korea's Sunday weapon test, including sampling air for radioactive particles and studying seismic shock waves, to determine if it did detonate a hydrogen bomb. The analysis, which is likely to take weeks, seeks to confirm the size of the detonation, the weapon design and the radioactive fuel used. Discovering the size of the weapon takes on increased importance since North Korea successfully launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles — weapons in theory capable of striking the U.S. mainland — in July.

Italy's fire brigade said it pulled three dead bodies from a shallow hole in a section of the crater at the Solfatara volcano, which was surrounded by a wooden fence meant to keep tourists out.

The victims were a 45-year-old man, a 42-year-old woman and their son. Another seven-year-old son did not fall into the hole and was unharmed, national fire brigade spokesman Luca Cari said.

An Italian couple and their 11-year-old son were killed today when a hole opened up in the ground at a bubbling volcanic crater near Naples , a popular tourist site. Italy 's fire brigade said it pulled three dead bodies from a shallow hole in a section of the crater at the Solfatara volcano

"Either there was a small explosion, or the ground simply gave way from their weight, and they fell into this hole," Cari said. "It was inside a fenced-off area."

Firemen on the scene said the three victims, who were on holiday from northern Italy, appeared to have died from asphyxia, possibly because of hot gases emanating from the ground. The official cause of death will be determined by an autopsy.

The Solfatara volcano is one of many volcanic craters in the Campi Flegrei area, 20 kilometres (12 miles) west of Naples, which first opened up to tourists in 1900, according to its website. The accident happened at the Bocca Grande (Big Mouth), the largest of the fumaroles in the area, which the ancient Romans called the home of the God of fire.

The ground at the site emits water vapours of 160 degrees Celsius (320 degrees Fahrenheit) and gases including poisonous hydrogen sulphide, the website said.
