Pupils and teachers of the ecological gymnasium stand around candles lit to commemorate victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Minsk, Belarus, Monday, April 25, 2011. The blast on April 26, 1986, spewed a cloud of radioactive fallout over much of Europe and forced hundreds of thousands from their homes in the most heavily hit areas in Ukraine, Belarus and western Russia. The disaster did not become public knowledge for several days, because Soviet officials released no information until 72 hours after the accident. (AP Photo/Sergei Grits)
