High Speed Train Lyon-Torino: fear for asbestos in mountain
In Torino (Italy) tens of thousands of people have demonstrated against the building of high speed railroad from there to Lyon in France. Among them many people from the valley of Susa, near the french Mont Cenis. From their valley, a tunnel needs to be drilled to get the train in France. These people have a remarkable argument against the train, Le Monde reports. It's a known fact there is asbestos in the mountain. Drilling in this stuff will cause enormous health risks.
