Cardinal targets nuclear weapons

Cardinal Keith O'Brien, leader of Scotland's Roman Catholics, has urged Britain to scrap its nuclear weapons programme.

As UK ministers consider their choices for replacing the ageing Trident nuclear missile system, the cardinal used his Easter Day message at St Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh to rally public support for his nuclear stance.

He said the money needed to build and maintain nuclear weapons, estimated at 20 Billion Pounds, should be used to help the poor.
