Clashes over German nuclear waste

Protesters have clashed with police in Germany while trying to halt a train carrying nuclear waste.

    A forest in Germany has been turned into a battleground over nuclear power.

    More than 17,000 policemen are trying to keep a trainload of nuclear waste on the move to a storage site at Gorleben.

    Protesters are doing everything they can to stop it, including trying to sabotage the track.
