A fire that destroyed part of the roof of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant Friday night did not cause injuries or a radiation leak, the government said Saturday. But the incident is certain to intensify calls to shut down the plant. The blaze, which also forced the shutdown of a nuclear reactor, was the worst accident at the Ukrainian plant since the 1986 disaster that spewed radiation throughout Europe.

A legal ban and barbed wire notwithstanding, these Ukrainians have returned to the homes they were forced to evacuate after the Chernobyl disaster.
