13 Feb 2013 A section of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine collapsed under the weight of snow, officials said Wednesday, raising new concerns about the condition of the facility that was the site of the world’s worst nuclear accident. There were no injuries after Tuesday’s accident nor any increase in radiation from the reactor that exploded in 1986, the country’s emergency agency said. French construction firms Vinci and Bouygues said Wednesday they had evacuated as a precaution around 80 employees working on a new protective shelter from the site.
