UN atomic watchdog says the status of Russian-occupied Ukraine nuclear plant is 'extremely serious'

KYIV, Ukraine - An explosion caused by an alleged drone attack at Europe's largest nuclear plant in Ukraine on Tuesday posed no direct threat to its safety but underscored the ''extremely serious situation'' at the facility that repeatedly has been caught in the war 's crossfire, the U.N.'s atomic watchdog agency said.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said its team was aware of an explosion at a training center next to the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant. It said it was informed the blast was from a drone attack but gave no further details.

The agency's information presumably came from Russians who have occupied and run the plant since the war's early stages.
