WBEZ - Reflections on Developments in Syria: Yaser Tabbara on Chicago Public Radio
Anti-government protesters continue to demonstrate across Syria today. So far at least 61 people have been killed. Yaser Tabbara, a Syrian-American lawyer and activist joins us to discuss the ongoing violence there. Also, we'll spend the week taking a look at how the Japanese nuclear crisis may or may not affect the nuclear energy industry in both developed and developing countries. We kick off the series with a look at global trends. Allison Macfarlane, chair of the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, tells us which countries are busy building new nuclear power plants and which ones are moving to shut them down.
