Ukraine on edge as shelling near Europe’s largest nuclear power plant continues


Officials in Zaporizhzhia are reviewing evacuation plans and doling out iodine tablets for nearby residents to take if radiation leaks from the nuclear plant. The head of Zaporizhzhia’s regional government says if disaster strikes, Ukrainians in Russia-controlled areas would be taken to central and west Ukraine. The U.N.’s nuclear agency says it’s aiming to send inspectors to the site in a few days to assess damage and safety systems after shelling forced the plant to be briefly taken offline.
