Siberian village struggles with nuclear past

In contaminated area of Chelyabinsk, locals say government resettlement funds were stolen.

    Sixty years after radioactive waste was dumped in a river in southwest Siberia, local residents are still suffering.

    The Russian government says a resettlement programme to move more than 100 villages has been completed. But residents say money that should have been used to re-house them has been stolen.

    Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford has the second of his special reports from the Chelyabinsk region.
