Marshalls anti nuke case "inspiring" despite dismissal

Backers of the Marshall Islands in its international anti nuclear fight say the battle has not been in vain as other non nuclear nations have been inspired to fight for nuclear disarmament.

The Marshall Islands cases at the International Court of Justice against the UK, Pakistan and India came to a halt last week after the court decided it had no jurisdiction to hear the cases.

Rick Wayman of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation says it's disappointing but there's still hope.
