Nuclear fears cast doubt over Australian mine

The Japanese nuclear disaster has added impetus to the fight against a uranium mine.

    The fallout from Japan's nuclear crisis at the Fukushima power plant is being felt all the way in Australia.

    An aboriginal group wants one of Australia's biggest uranium mines to be shut down. The mine exports material used to make nuclear energy, and the group says the mine is polluting its traditional land.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports.
