#ing hell, if this is true this is no joke. Thank god they found it.
Apparently there was no detonator with the explosives but my guess someone on the inside had them.. The engineers said if it went off it would not have damaged the reactor, but who is to say that explosives were being smuggled in to be placed inside the reactor and not to go off next to it...edit on 21-6-2012 by EvanB because: (no reason given)

So do you feel that the question of who brought the explosives there, and when and how are now 'old news'? That this is "as good as over"?
I would like to know how the security measures they boast of failed here? They did fail, didn't they?
Or is it possible that this was meant to be found? It certainly couldn't have been meant to destroy anything - lacking a detonator.
Bomb sniffer dogs detected the explosives during a routine check Wednesday afternoon by security staff while the truck was in the power plant's industrial area near its high security enclosure. Police declined to describe the amount or type of explosive material found.
