‘Possible incident’ at nuclear power station in Pakistan

A spokesman from Poland’s National Atomic Energy Agency on Friday said there were “unconfirmed reports” about a possible incident at a nuclear power station in Pakistan. However, he said the information required further confirmation. The UN atomic agency said “very low levels” of radioactive iodine-131 had been detected in the air in the Czech Republic and in other countries, but presented no risk to human health.
The Czech nuclear safety office said the source of the contamination was “most probably” outside the Czech Republic, and that its information suggested the cause was not an accident at an atomic power plant. Poland, Slovakia and Austria also said they had detected abnormal but still very low levels, with Poland saying they had been “100 times higher” in March afer Japan’s Fukushima nuclear accident. The International Atomic Energy Agency said it had received information from Czech authorities “that very low levels of iodine-131 have been measured in the atmosphere over the Czech Republic in recent days.
