Indian fishermen rail against nuclear plant

Workers near country's first atomic plant in Tarapur say it cost them their jobs by destroying natural habitats.

    French President Francois Hollande is on a trade trip to India, where he is expected to finalise a deal to build more nuclear power stations.

    However, fishermen who live near India's first nuclear plant, built in Tarapur in 1969, say it cost them their livelihoods, destroying the natural habitats they used to fish.
