Risk of 'catastrophic' nuclear accident as world relations worsen, UN warns

Risk of 'catastrophic' nuclear accident as world relations worsen, UN warns | 21 April 2017 | There will be "catastrophic" consequences when "luck runs out" on nuclear deterrence, the United Nations (UN) has warned in a major report which highlights the massive risk of an accidental or deliberate use of the world's most deadly weapons. The "poor relations" between nuclear powers has contributed to an atmosphere that "lends itself to the onset of crisis," said the report by the UN Institute for Disarmament Research. The rise in cyber warfare and hacking has left the technical vulnerabilities of nuclear weapons systems exposed to risk from states and terrorist groups, it added.
