BERLIN (AP) - The U.N. nuclear agency said Friday that slightly elevated levels of radioactivity detected in northern Europe likely were related to a nuclear reactor that was either operating or undergoing maintenance, but it's still unclear where it is located. Estonia, Finland and Sweden last week measured higher-than-usual levels of ruthenium and caesium isotopes and detected some other artificial radionuclides. They said nothing on their territory had happened to explain their presence, as did more than 40 other countries that volunteered information to the International Atomic Energy Agency. The IAEA said the higher level of isotopes "is likely related to a nuclear reactor that is either operating or undergoing maintenance, when very low radioactive releases can occur." It added in a statement that "the geographical origin of the release has not yet been determined." The Vienna-based U.N. agency said it "ruled out that the release was related to the improper handling of a radioactive source." "It was also unlikely to be linked to a nuclear fuel processing plant, a spent fuel pool or to the use of radiation in industry or medicine," it said. The agency stressed anew that the concentrations of the particles in the air were very low and posed no risk to human health or the environment. The Netherlands' National Institute for Public Health and the Environment said a week ago that the isotopes may be from a source in Russia and "may indicate damage to a fuel element in a nuclear power plant." Russia's state nuclear power operator, however, said the two nuclear power plants in northwestern Russia haven't reported any problems. Russia was among the countries that reported back to the IAEA after it contacted nuclear authorities across Europe to request information.

BERLIN (AP) - The U.N. nuclear agency says slightly elevated levels of radioactivity that have been detected in northern Europe pose no risk to human health or to the environment but it's still unclear what the cause was. The Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish radiation and nuclear safety watchdogs said last week that they had spotted small amounts of radioactive isotopes in parts of Finland, southern Scandinavia and the Arctic. The International Atomic Energy Agency's director general, Rafael Grossi, said in a statement late Monday that "the levels reported to the IAEA are very low and pose no risk to human health and the environment." The Vienna-based agency contacted European countries on Saturday to request information. It said that, by Monday afternoon, 29 had voluntarily reported that nothing had happened on their territory that might have caused the concentrations of isotopes in the air. A few countries outside Europe reported similar findings. Russia wasn't on the list of countries that had reported back to the IAEA by Monday. "I expect more member states to provide relevant information and data to us, and we will continue to inform the public," Grossi said. The Netherlands' National Institute for Public Health and the Environment said Friday the isotopes may be from a source in Russia and "may indicate damage to a fuel element in a nuclear power plant." Russia's state nuclear power operator, however, said the two nuclear power plants in northwestern Russia haven't reported any problems. Sweden's Radiation Safety Authority said Tuesday that the country's Defense Research Institute also had measured levels of cesium-134, cesium-137 and ruthenium-103 at a station in Stockholm on June 22-23. The levels were similar to those recorded by the Finnish,...

Menendez alleged that without a fulsome explanation for USAID's procurement and provision of ventilators to a select group of countries, Trump's orders to ship more than 7,500 ventilators abroad, to just 40 countries, exemplifies the potential transactional politicisation of US foreign assistance and risks further tarnishing USAID's reputation as an apolitical aid agency.
