Environmentalists block highway in protest over Temelin

Austrian Environmental activists blocked the highway not far from the Czech-Austrian border for several hours on Sunday in protest against the Temelin nuclear power plant in South Bohemia. Around forty activists blocked the highway 500 metres from the Wullowitz-Dolni Dvoriste border crossing, and blocked traffic for several hours. The issue of Temelin has strained relations between the Czech Republic and Austria, which is a nuclear-free country.
