Taiwan: Protests over nuclear power plants


In Taiwan, more than 200,000 people have joined protests against the island's nuclear power facilities.

A fourth plant is under construction in northern Taiwan, around 30km (20 miles) from the capital Taipei.

The government insists the $9bn-facility is needed to prevent a power shortage.
