Germans sound nuclear dump alarm

Cancer statistics cited to oppose soon-to-be waste-storage site in the country's north.


    Thousands of angry protesters delayed a shipment of nuclear waste arriving at a dumping site in Germany last November.

    Authorities are considering using the site for long-term nuclear waste storage, but anti-nuclear campaigners say alarming cancer statistics at a site in the same region should serve as a warning.
