Nuclear accident in Spain angers officials

Spain's Endesa is accused of having played down an incident at a nuclear plant, with the radioactivity emitted 100 times more than previously admitted. The incident, which Endesa labeled "minor," happened last November at a nuclear power plant in Asco, northwestern Spain, but wasn't detected until last month. Spanish media reports Monday said officials from the country's nuclear watchdog, CSNhad, found that the levels of radioactivity meant Asco was the fourth-gravest incident connected to nuclear energy in Spain.
