Russia removed three US diplomats from a train near the site of a mysterious military testing accident on Monday because they did not have special permits to be in the area, the Interfax news agency reported on Wednesday.

Russia’s state nuclear agency, Rosatom, has acknowledged that five of its nuclear workers were killed in an Aug. 8 explosion during a rocket engine test near the White Sea in far northern Russia.

Rosatom said that the injured were being treated at a “specialized medical center.”

Interfax cited a source as saying that the US diplomats had been let go, but are regarded to have broken Russian law.
