Closure will strain country's power supply, officials say.

South Korea today closed two nuclear power plants in the south after finding them equipped with thousands of parts that had fake certification. The discovery comes as closer attention is paid to safety conditions at nuclear power plants following Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant crisis last year.
