Hong Kong holds nuclear accident drill

Rescue workers wearing white environmental suits are pictured during the Daya Bay Contingency Plan exercise in Hong Kong, China, 26 April 2012. Hong Kong held a nuclear emergency drill on Thursday (Apr. 26) involving over 1,000 officials and foreign experts, the citys first exercise since the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan last year. The drill was meant to test contingency plans for a nuclear incident at Daya Bay power plant in Chinas Guangdong province, 20 kilometres (12 miles) from Hong Kongs border and 50 kilometres from the centre of the financial hub. Greenpeace activists tried to participate in the exercise and managed to unfurl a banner reading Save our home from nuclear risks before they were turned back by the authorities. The two-day drill, which will continue on Friday (Apr. 27), was announced last year shortly after the Fukushima plant in Japan was hit by meltdowns and explosions triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami.
