IAEA: Powerful blasts occurring near Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director Rafael Grossi said on Thursday that the agency's experts have reported "powerful explosions" near the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) in recent days, including today.

Grossi noted the blasts are indicating "military activities in the vicinity of the site" in Ukraine. The IAEA added that some of the explosions were recorded "some distance away" from ZNPP, while others "seem much closer to the facility itself."

The IAEA head insisted these recent blasts further show how important it is to create a Nuclear Safety and Security Protection Zone around the site as soon as possible.
