U.N. Nuclear Watchdog Alarmed by Shelling Near Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia Plant


The head of the United Nations atomic agency said shelling in the vicinity of Europe’s largest nuclear power station, located in Ukraine, underlined the risk of a disaster that would threaten public health far beyond the battlefield.

Rafael Grossi’s comments Saturday came after shelling near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant on Friday severed a high-voltage power line and prompted staff at the station to close one of its six reactors, according to the Ukrainian nuclear regulator.
