UAE starts up first Arab nuclear plant

The UAE has launched operations at the Arab world’s first nuclear power plant. Nuclear fission begun in one of four reactors at the Barakah plant on the Gulf coast just east of Qatar. The oil-rich UAE wants Barakah to meet a quarter of its energy needs, as it adopts sustainable energy sources. Last year rival Qatar called the Barakah plant a ’flagrant threat to regional peace and environment’.
