US queries Moscow N-blast

The United States has asked Moscow about a "seismic event" 12 days ago at or near a nuclear test site to help determine whether Russia breached a self-imposed moratorium on nuclear test blasts, the White House said. Russia, which said in 1992 that it was halting nuclear explosions, denied it had carried out a test and said it was sticking to its moratorium.
