Nuclear accident sends 'harmless' radioactive cloud over Europe  

Nuclear safety institutes in Europe have measured high levels of levels of ruthenium-106, a radioactive nuclide that is the product of splitting atoms that does not occur naturally. A cloud of radioactive pollution over Europe in recent weeks indicates that an accident happened in a nuclear facility in Russia or Kazakhstan in the last week of September, French nuclear safety institute IRSN has said.

The IRSN on Thursday ruled out an accident in a nuclear reactor, saying it was likely to be in a nuclear fuel treatment site or centre for radioactive medicine. There has been no impact on human health or the environment in Europe, it said. Read more HERE.
