Bulgaria votes to start reactors

BULGARIA'S parliament has approved plans to seek European Union permission to relaunch two old nuclear reactors mothballed when it joined the EU two years ago.

Law makers voted 140-48 yesterday to invoke an accession treaty clause allowing the reactors to be restarted in an energy crisis. The government says Bulgarian businesses lost 100 million euros (US$129 million) when Russian natural gas supplies were suspended because of a dispute with Ukraine.
