5 dead in Russian missile test explosion

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia's nuclear agency says five of its employees were killed when a rocket engine exploded during a test at a far-northern military base. Soon after Thursday's explosion, the Russian Defense Ministry said two people died and four were injured, including servicemen and civilian engineers. It was not immediately clear if the five fatalities cited in a Saturday statement by Rosatom were all in addition to the previously reported deaths.
