China city 'suspends' Sino-French nuclear project after protests

A Chinese city said on Wednesday it would halt preparations for a possible Sino-French nuclear project after thousands of locals protested against it over the weekend, the latest official concession following environmental demonstrations. After days of protests by angry residents, the government of Lianyungang said on a verified microblog that it would “temporarily suspend” selection of a location for a nuclear fuel processing plant. French nuclear fuel group Areva in 2012 agreed to cooperate with state-run China National Nuclear Corp (CNNC) to build a reprocessing facility in China, without stating the location.
