March 1996 Archives

Diarmuid MacDermot, Cork Examiner

Ali Hewson spoke yesterday of her flight from a deadly radioactive cloud near Chernobyl.

Ali was with a convoy bringing aid to the victims of the world's worst ever nuclear accident when fires swept through five abandoned villages near the nuclear plant.

"Five villages were on fire," she said. "It sent radiation levels soaring into the atmosphere. The wind was carrying it south. That's exactly what happened in the first Chernobyl and it turned around and came back up to the north west."
