Protestors stop nuclear waste train in France: police

5th November 2010, Comments 0 comments

Anti-nuclear protestors in northwestern France on Friday blocked a train carrying nuclear waste that environmentalists have called the "most radioactive in history" on its way to Germany, police said.

The train, which environmental lobby groups say is carrying twice the radioactivity of the Chernobyl disaster, was stopped in the city of Caen as it headed for Gorleben in Germany.
