The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has sound the alarm over the situation at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant after shelling damaged parts of the compound on Friday.

“I’m extremely concerned by the shelling yesterday at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, which underlines the very real risk of a nuclear disaster that could threaten public health and the environment in Ukraine and beyond,” Rafael Mariano Grossi said in a statement.
