30 years ago today, a botched safety test led to the world’s worst nuclear disaster at Chernobyl in Eastern Ukraine. France, with its 58 nuclear reactors, is particularly sensitive to this story. François Hollande reiterated a promise to close the oldest one at Fessenheim but no firm date is set. What future for atomic energy? And could the next Chernobyl be on purpose? It’s a serious question since Belgian authorities revealed that the Brussels attackers had considered targeting nuclear plants.
Produced by Charles WENTE, François WIBAUX and Christopher DAVIS.
