One person has been killed and four injured, one seriously, in a blast at the Marcoule nuclear site in France.
There was no risk of a radioactive leak after the blast, caused by a fire near a furnace in the Centraco radioactive waste storage site, said officials.
The owner of the southern French plant, national electricity provider EDF, said it had been “an industrial accident, not a nuclear accident”.
The cause of the blast was not yet known, said the company.
