International monitors demanded the immediate establishment of a security zone around a Russian-occupied nuclear plant in southern Ukraine in order to reduce the potential for an atomic accident. 

The International Atomic Energy Agency called for a halt to shelling and the need for “the urgent establishment” of a nuclear safety and security zone around the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, the agency said in a 52-page report published Tuesday that details damage at the facility.
