  • Description

    A Canadian aircraft searching for radiation from a Soviet spy satellite that crashed over Canada on Tuesday (24 January) has detected what could be radioactive debris. A Canadian defence spokesman said the aircraft reported a probable contact in an uninhabited area of Canada's Northwest Territories, some 200 miles (350 Kilometres) from Fort Reliance, a tiny fishing community usually uninhabited in winter. Further action will be decided when analysis of the radiation is completed. As the search continued, Roy Neal of the National Broadcasting Company Incorporated sent this report from the town of Yellowknife.

    SYNOPSIS: In Ottawa, Brian Stewart of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation asked Defence Minister Barney Danson to answer criticism of US-Canadian co-operation.
