TRI-CITIES, Wash. (AP) - Buddhist monks are set to lead an annual prayer walk to the Hanford nuclear reservation as part of an effort to bring an end to nuclear weapons.

The Tri-City Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2atwO2S ) that the monks will head to the southern gate of the nuclear site Thursday. The walk will begin at John Dam Plaza, where the monks will hold a brief ceremony with participants at 1 p.m.

The six-mile walk is part of a two-week Pacific Northwest Interfaith Peace Walk through parts of Washington state and Oregon to call for the abolition of nuclear weapons.

A support vehicle will provide water and a ride to participants needing a break.
