Germans rally against nuclear waste train

German police on Sunday battled thousands of anti-nuclear protestors — many chained to railroad tracks — trying to block a train delivering radioactive waste from France. Security forces moved in to tracks around the northern town of Harlingen, telling at least 3,500 demonstrators who had occupied the rail line to clear out. The protestors argue that the shipment by train of spent nuclear fuel rods is hazardous and note that Germany, like the rest of Europe, has no permanent storage site for the waste, which will remain dangerous for thousands of years.
