Bahrain scraps nuclear power plan
Manama, February 21, 2012
Bahrain has abandoned its plans to adopt nuclear power as an alternative power source, according to the country's Energy Minister Dr Abdulhussain Mirza.
The Kingdom had been exploring nuclear energy as an alternative power source, but scrapped the idea following an explosion that crippled Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant last year, Dr Mirza told the Shura Council yesterday.
