- France delays nuclear train amid demo threats
France - French authorities on Thursday ordered a train carrying reprocessed nuclear waste to be delay crossing into Germany for 24 hours to try to avoid mass protests from anti-nuclear demonstrators.
Riot police battled protesters when it began its journey in northern France on Wednesday and thousands more demonstrators are expected to try to block it once it crosses the border.
The train was halted at Remilly junction 50 kilometres (30 miles) from the border while nuclear company Areva, French rail firm SNCF and police decided which of three possible routes it can now take, a security source said.
