Two Detained As Traces Of Explosives Found At Swedish Nuclear Plant

Two men have been detained by police, suspected of planning to sabotage a nuclear power station in the south of Sweden. The plant was sealed off by police after a worker was found going into the complex with traces of powerful explosives.

The man was working at the Oskarshamn plant in southern Sweden as a welder, but police say the explosives weren’t anything he would use in his job, and have detained the man for questioning. The traces found on him were of a substance called TATP, a highly explosive chemical, also used in the terrorist attacks in London in 2005, where 50 people were killed.
