The World

About 20,000 West Germans rallied in freezing weather to protest government plans to build a nuclear fuel reprocessing plant near Schwandorf, 69 miles east of Nuremberg, police reported. After gathering in Schwandorf, the demonstrators marched to the planned site for the plant in nearby Wackersdorf. Police said the rally, organized by the anti-nuclear Greens party, ended peacefully. The Wackersdorf plant will be used as the central facility to reprocess most of West Germany's nuclear fuel waste.
