Philippine riot policemen in an armored personnel carrier plowed through 5,000 demonstrators, injuring six people on the second day of a protest against the nation’s first nuclear power plant, situated 50 miles from Manila. Tanks were deployed on highways, and 100 air force reinforcements were called from a neighboring province. Other protesters gathered at Orani, 35 miles northwest of Manila, to denounce the $2.1-billion plant.
