Swedish nuclear reactor shut down after small leak

Officials say they are temporarily shutting down a Swedish nuclear reactor for maintenance work after a minor leak was discovered in a water-cleansing system.


Plant spokesman Claes-Inge Andersson says there are no safety risks related to incident since the leak only involves a few drops per second in a system component. The Forsmark 2 reactor was already scheduled for refueling. (AP)
