Greenpeace Blasts Egypt for Nuclear Plans, Israel National News by Hillel Fendel, 30 Aug 2010, The international environmental organization Greenpeace has targeted Egypt for its plan to build a nuclear energy plant off the Mediterranean coast.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced last week his country’s plan to build its first nuclear power plant. It is to be located in Mersa Matrouh, on Egypt’s northern coast, and the decision to build it was reportedly taken in association with the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)..

….The Mediterranean chapter of Greenpeace announced that it “strongly objects” to the decision. “The idea of developing nuclear energy is dangerous,” the organization states, “as well as expensive and not environmentally-friendly.” The group says that the new plant will be a “grave regional threat.”Greenpeace Blasts Egypt for Nuclear Plans – Defense/Middle East – Israel News – Israel National News
