The Communist Chinese government could be conducting secret, low-powered nuclear tests despite claiming that it was honoring an international agreement banning all nuke testing, a U.S. media report said. A new arms-control report coming from the State Department cites actions that "raise concerns" that Beijing might not be complying with the "zero-yield" nuclear weapons testing ban, the media reported. The concerns stem from increased activity at China's Lop Nur test site, including extensive excavations, and Beijing's suspected use of special chambers to contain explosions.
