1 Dead in Explosion at French Nuclear Plant
The French nuclear safety body says one person died and another was seriously injured Monday in an explosion at the Marcoule nuclear site in southern France.

The Nuclear Safety Authority said there have been no radiation leaks outside of the plant, which treats nuclear waste with little radioactivity.

Three other people were injured in the explosion, the statement said.

Staff at the plant reacted to the accident according to planned procedures, it said.

The Marcoule site is located in Langedoc Roussillon, in southern France, near the Mediterranean Sea.
