BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary temporarily shut a reactor at the Paks nuclear power plant on Thursday due to a malfunction of control equipment, the Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority said.
The reactor, which automatically stopped due to the malfunction, remains safe, it said in a statement on its website.
It could come back online at about 1000 GMT on Friday, said Antal Kovacs, a spokesman for the plant.
