Clashes on tracks as German nuclear train halted

Police have clashed with activists trying to halt a train carrying nuclear waste from France to Germany.

Officers used batons, pepper spray, tear gas and water cannon to disperse about 250 activists who were trying to sabotage railway tracks.

The clashes near Dannenberg, northern Germany, followed peaceful protests against the train on Saturday by tens of thousands.
