In the early hours of 26 April 1986, a reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power station in the Soviet Union exploded, triggering the world’s worst ever nuclear disaster.

Thirty-five years later, millions of people -- an entire generation -- still suffer because of the accident at the power plant just a few kilometers from the northern Ukrainian city of Pripyat. EFE
