Australia nuclear waste dump row

Planned nuclear dump in Northern Territory divides local Aboriginal community.

    Australia's government is pushing its plans for a nuclear waste dump in a remote part of the country's Northern Territory.

    It has signed an agreement with the traditional owners of the land who will receive $10m in compensation, most of it in cash.

    But the proposed nuclear dump has divided local people while and environmentalists warn it could one day be used to store waste from overseas.
