Iran's nuclear power plant undergoes emergency shutdown

Iran's only nuclear power facility Bushehr went under an emergency shutdown, the country's media reported on Sunday.

The news was confirmed by the state-sponsored energy company, with an official from the company saying the shutdown began on Saturday and will last around three to four days.

The official also warned that power outages may occur in the country as a result of the shutdown. However, he did not give an indication as to why the shutdown was initiated, the first for the plant since it went operational in 2011.
