UN: Growing African interest in nuclear power

Can the Muslim Brotherhood play nice with nuke power?

From Engineering News:

African countries are seriously considering adopting nuclear energy, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director-general Yukiya Amano has confirmed, in reply to a question from Engineering News Online. “We are working with Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria.” The IAEA is, of course, also working with South Africa, which already has nuclear power but is currently planning to considerably expand its nuclear generating capacity. “Other [African] countries are considering or preparing for nuclear,” he stated. “We have a milestone document. This provides guidance. We are recommending that they use it – it is also [a form of] assistance.” (The document is ‘Milestones in the Development of a National Infrastructure for Nuclear Power’.)
