Yonhap, Aug. 13, 2013: [...] According to the sources, the Korea Institute of Nuclear Safety detected traces of the colorless, odorless noble gas on three occasions in June. Xenon is detected in trace amounts after nuclear bomb tests or other nuclear activities. [...] The government could not determine the origin of the Xenon gas, one of the sources said, adding that the North may not be responsible because no signs of nuclear activities have been seen in the country at around that time. [...]
Wall St. Journal, August 13, 2013: [...] Lee Ho-ryung, a nuclear specialist at the Korea Institute of Defense Analyses in Seoul, told Korea Real Time that [...] the xenon traces didn’t necessarily originate from North Korea. They may have come from Japan, which is still struggling to recover from radiation leaks at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant [...]
Possible causes of Xenon releases

Wall St. Journal, Nov. 3, 2011: Nuclear fission by-products have been detected at one of the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the government said Wednesday, raising the possibility that some parts of the melted core may still be active. [...] Xenon-133 has a short half-life of five days, and Xenon-135 just nine hours, an agency spokesman said. Any nuclear reaction would likely be taking place on a localized basis, the spokesman said. [...]
Asahi Shimbun, Nov. 3, 2011: [Tepco] said Nov. 3 that naturally occurring “spontaneous nuclear fission”–not a state of criticality–created the xenon detected at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. [...] Instead of being caused by self-sustaining nuclear fission, the xenon was likely generated by spontaneous fission of curium and other radioactive substances derived from the reactor fuel, TEPCO said. [...]
