About 1,000 protesters tried to block the transport of nuclear waste to a temporary holding site in southern Germany. Police said 114 people were detained when anti-nuclear activists blocked roads and a bridge as three nuclear-waste containers were transported by truck from Neckarwestheim to nearby Walheim in Baden-Wurttemberg state. Another container was brought by train to Walheim from Grundremmingen in Bavaria. Two more containers also arrived from a nuclear waste reprocessing plant at La Hague in France. The containers will be loaded on a train for the trip to the nuclear waste storage site at Gorleben. AP - Stuttgart
