An incident at a nuclear power plant has caused panic in central Russia, with disbelieving residents ignoring official accounts of what happened.
Russian officials say the emergency shutdown at the Balakovskaya nuclear power plant on Thursday resulted in no increase of radioactivity.
However residents up to 300 kilometres away have rushed to buy radiation antidotes, while some businesses are advising employees to stay home and close the windows.
