    New British warhead breaches non proliferation treaty

    This report from the Advertiser:

    The weapon of mass destruction, known as the Reliable Replacement Warhead, will be tested in the laboratory because the testing of nuclear weapons is banned under the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.

    The nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is supposed to stop countries expanding or enhancing their nuclear arsenals.

    Other nuclear powers, such as the U.S., France and China, test weapons in labs or in "sub critical" explosions which do not result in a nuclear blast.

    The RRW will replace the Trident ballistic missile as the centrepiece of the UK nuclear deterrence system. Trident was due to be phased out within 20 years and a report due this week calls for it to be scrapped, not replaced.
