UN inspectors say Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant ‘violated’ amid heavy shelling

Correspondent

UN inspectors say they have seen the key things they needed to see – after spending several hours at the Russian occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine – on a mission to avert a radiation disaster.

The agency’s chief said his team would try to work out a permanent presence there, adding he would “continue to be worried” until things were more stable.

The mission began with a hazardous journey along a route that has come under intense shelling.
