  1. Chornobyl: 30 years later

    On April 26, 1986, an accident in Reactor No. 4 of the Chornobyl power plant in the then-Soviet republic of Ukraine sent a cloud of radioactive fallout over much of Europe and forced the evacuation of about 115,000 people from the plant's vicinity. About 600,000 people, often referred to as Chornobyl's "liquidators," were sent in to fight the fire at the nuclear plant and clean up the worst of its contamination. Thirty workers died either from the explosion or from acute radiation sickness within several months. The accident exposed millions in the region to dangerous levels of radiation and forced a wide-scale, permanent evacuation of hundreds of towns and villages in Ukraine and Belarus. The final death toll from Chornobyl is subject to speculation, due to the long-term effects of radiation, but ranges from an estimate of 9,000 by the World Health Organization to one of a possible 90,000 by the environmental group Greenpeace. Today, a 30-kilometre area directly around the plant remains largely off-limits. A new giant arch-shaped confinement is being constructed over the old sarcophagus. 04/26/2016 1:09 PM
