WORLD BRIEFING / SWEDEN

Security faulted at nuclear site

October 31, 2008|Times Wire Reports

Managers of an atomic power plant in Sweden used janitors to guard the facility when the alarm system was malfunctioning, according to a critical report from the country's nuclear watchdog.

In a statement on its website, the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority said managers at the Oskarshamn plant had cleaning and maintenance staff help guard parts of the plant's perimeter because some motion sensors were not working.

It said the workers had no security guard training.
