    Happened at Marcoule.

    No leaks have been reported yet, but possibility for one is there.

    Explosion was "huge" and before that there was fire, one dead and 3 injured.

    Plants last reactor was shut down at 1984. It's one of the oldest ones in France. Atm there is facility which handles nuclear waste.

    Thats all info I have atm. From Finnish source. http://www.hs.fi/ulkomaat/artikkeli/Ydinvoimalassa+räjähdys+Ranskassa/1135269287418

    maybe it was a sabotage or terrorist attack even (gheddafi loyalists perhaps?) if i remember correctly, in one of his speeches Gheddafi said his loyalists would hit all over europe "like a swarm of locusts or bees".

    he may be gone now from libya but that don't mean he can't hire people to do a few dirty jobs.

    or maybe the reactor simply exploded for technical reasons and there was no sabotage, since there's no word yet on the actual cause of the explosion. ;)

    hope France gets through this safely.

    I hope all are well there, and that there aren't any lingering effects from this.

    No leak of hazardous material.

    It's more like industrial accident than nuclear accident.
