Austrian anti-nuclear protests continue

Austrian environmentalists protesting against a nuclear power station in the neighbouring Czech Republic have continued to blockade the border between the two countries.

However, the BBC correspondent in Austria says there are now only a couple of hundred protesters, down from several thousand on Friday.

The far-right Austrian politician, Joerg Haider, visited the protestors and called on the Czech government to shut down the plant at Temelin because of concerns about its safety.

The Czechs say they have asked the European Union to intervene to stop the protests.
