Romanian gold mine project scrapped amid nightly protests

Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta has announced a controversial gold mining project will now not go ahead after nightly demonstrations in the capital Bucharest.

The Rosia Montana project was due to become Europe’s largest gold mining venture.

Protesters objected to the use of cyanide in the process and home owners in the area refused to sell off property to make way for the mine.
