The International Atomic Energy Agency urged Russia and Ukraine on Tuesday to establish a “nuclear safety and security protection zone” around the Zaporizhzhia power plant amid mounting fears the shelling in the area could trigger a nuclear emergency.

In a report following a visit by an inspection team last week, the agency said all of its safety principles had been compromised at the facility. Sergio Olmos has a report from Kyiv.
