- Last body found at site of Siberian hydropower plant accident
Investigators have completed a probe into an accident at Russia's largest hydro-electric plant that killed 75 people in 2009.
Another 85 people were injured after water swept through the engine room at the Sayano-Shushenskaya plant in eastern Siberia.
Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for the investigative committee at the Russian Prosecutor General's office, said seven people, including the plant's former head Nikolai Nevolko and his deputies, were charged with safety breaches.
Located more than 4,000 km east of Moscow in the remote region of Khakassia, the Sayano-Shushenskaya plant is one of the biggest hydroelectric plants in the world.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
