Huge Rally in Germany: 'Nuclear Power? No Thanks!'

AP staff

BERLIN - An explosion at a Japanese nuclear power plant has given new fuel to a long-running dispute over the technology's future in Germany, where thousands on Saturday demonstrated against plans to extend the life of the country's nuclear power stations.

Organizers said tens of thousands formed a human chain between the Neckarwestheim nuclear plant and the southwestern city of Stuttgart, which are 28 miles (45 kilometers) appart- some waving yellow flags with the slogan "Nuclear power - no thanks." Police didn't immediately give a figure.
