Gunmen storm South African nuclear facility

A preliminary report from WorldnetDaily:

An early morning attack by four gunmen who stormed and reached the emergency-response control room of a secured nuclear facility in South Africa has left one of the plant's operational officers hospitalized and officials with the country's nuclear agency threatening a newspaper with charges of violating national security laws for publishing an account of the intrusion.

I don't know if this is a big deal or not, but hopefully we'll get the full story soon.

Yes. it is a big deal. The attack took place at a former nuclear weapons facility.

Unfortunately, we don't know the motives behind the attack. What is pretty bad is how easily 4 people were able to get into a secure facility. And that there is no official statement on the incident.
