SYDNEY (AFP) – Nakarating na sa Australia kahapon ang isang barko lulan ang 25 tonelada ng radioactive waste.

Aabot sa isang dosenang Greenpeace protesters, ang iba ay may bitbit na karatula na may katagang: “Don’t waste Australia”, ang nagtungo malapit sa entrance ng Port, Sydney sa pagdating ng barkong BBC Shanghai.

“This container is so well shielded that you could sit on it for five hours and receive no more of a radiation dose than you would on a flight to Singapore,” paliwanag ng general manager for nuclear security na si Paul Jones.
