Lithuanians rejected a plan to build a nuclear plant to cut dependence on imports of Russian energy, in a referendum that does not kill off the project but leaves a big question mark over its future.

Support for the plant in Lithuania, one of the European Union states most dependent on imported energy, waned after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan last year.



With results counted from about three-quarters of Lithuania's districts after Sunday's referendum, 62.7 percent voted "No", while 33.96 percent were in favor.

Turnout was about 52 percent, just over the threshold to make the referendum valid.
