Explosion at French nuclear plant, no contamination risk


An explosion at a nuclear power station in northern France on Thursday caused minor injuries but happened outside the plant's nuclear zone and posed no risk of contamination, authorities said, APA reported citing AFP.

 

"It is a significant technical event but it is not a nuclear accident," senior local official Olivier Marmion told AFP following the blast at the Flamanville plant 25 kilometres (15 miles) west of Cherbourg.
