PARIS (Reuters) - EDF said on Wednesday that no leakages had occurred at its French nuclear plants, after market talk of a possible incident hit its share price.

A spokeswoman for the electricity company said a minor incident in April inside the reactor 3 of its Paluel plant had caused an internal breach in waterproofing but that no external leakage had occurred.
