WASHINGTON (AP) -- A federal judge cleared the way Friday for the Army
to begin incinerating Cold War-era chemical weapons at a military
facility in Alabama, rejecting environmentalists' claims that the
process will endanger nearby residents.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson denied a request from an
environmental group for a temporary restraining order to block the
startup of the incinerator at the Anniston Army Depot.

At a hearing, Jackson said the harm the plaintiffs claimed would come
from the incineration "is purely speculative at this time."
