Austrian environmentalists have blocked a highway near the Czech-Austrian border in protest against the Temelin nuclear power plant in South Bohemia. Temelin has strained relations between the Czech Republic and Austria over the past year. In December, the Austrian and Czech prime ministers agreed to carry out an environmental impact study into Temelin to address Austrian safety concerns. The study published by the Czech side states that Temelin poses a minimal risk to the environment. But Austrian environmentalists say the report is incomplete and invalid, and on Friday afternoon a group of activists blocked the highway leading to the Wullowitz-Dolni Dvoriste border crossing in protest. The highway was blocked about a kilometre away from the border on the Austrian side for about half and hour.
