MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 13th August, 2019) Al Jazeera website used a wrong picture for its Tuesday's article about an explosion in Russia's Arkhangelsk Region, calling it a "skyfall nuclear blast," while in reality the photo showed an explosion at an ammunition depot in Russia's Krasnoyarsk Territory.
On Saturday, Russia's nuclear energy company Rosatom said that five of its employees had died in an explosion that happened on Thursday during tests of a liquid-propellant rocket engine at a military site in Arkhangelsk Region.
The Russian Defense Ministry said that, following the explosion, the background radiation levels were normal.
