MALAYSA-AUSTRALIA-ENVIRONMENT

Residents and activists protest against rare earth Australian mining firm Lynas Corp near Merdeka Square in Kuala Lumpur on November 26, 2012. The refinery is set to become one of few sites outside China to process rare earths -- metals used in high-tech equipment ranging from missiles to mobile phones. Campaigners say the processing of rare earths would release radioactive gases and solid waste like thorium, radium, lead and small amounts of uranium into the environment.
