A gas leak sparked an explosion and fire Tuesday at a nuclear plant that is believed to produce enriched plutonium for Pakistan's atomic weapons program. Two workers were killed.

The Khushab heavy water plant was shut down while undergoing annual maintenance at the time, the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission said. The commission evacuated the plant but assured the public that there was no risk of exposure outside the sprawling facility southeast of the capital, Islamabad.

...

Police near the plant said they were advised by plant officials to prepare buses for a wider evacuation, but then were told they would not be needed.

...

Local officials were not immediately told of the incident.

That's a plausible scenario in India, as well.

gas explosion? what kind? hydrogen? natural gas?


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

gas explosion? what kind? hydrogen? natural gas?

From the Islamic Republic News Agency:

Local TV channels reported that a cylinder of hydrogen phosphate gas blew up in a nuclear plant and the whole area atmosphere was soon permeated with poisonous gas.

...

According to sources, the hydrogen phosphate is a very dangerous gas, therefore, the whole area is seen terror-stricken and people are rushing out from the area.

Sounds like an industrial accident that occured at a nuke plant.
