Belgium began Monday to make iodine pills available free to its 11 million people in case of an accident at its ageing nuclear plants but said there was no "specific risk," Journal du Cameroun reports.

The government also launched a website in the country’s official languages French, Dutch and German to tell people what to do in an emergency as it began implementing plans announced two years ago.

Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon said his government aimed "to properly inform" the public but said the plans were preventative.

"For now there is no specific risk with our nuclear plants," Jambon told Belgian broadcaster RTBF.
