The Independent: Det rasar enorma skogsbränder runt Tjernobyl.

More than 10,000 hectares of forest are burning in the Chernobylexclusion zone, a Ukrainian official has warned.

Lyudmila Denisova, commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for human rights said the fires have led to an increased level of radioactive air pollution with a threat to neighbouring European countries.

The Guardian:

Burning around Chernobyl is a concern because the burning may mobilize radioactive particles that were deposited decades ago when the reactors melted down.
