Activists protest nuclear power

Anti-nuclear activists demonstrate against the German government's nuclear energy policy in front of the German Chancellery in Berlin, Germany, on Sept. 5.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, portrayed by activists with a large mask during this demonstration, made a deal with key leaders of her center-right coalition government to extend the lifespans of nuclear energy plants.
