Japan rejects Greenpeace argument for expanding evacuation zone | Reuters

(Reuters) - Japan's nuclear safety agency on Monday rebuffed a call by Greenpeace to extend an evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima power plant.

An agency official told a news briefing that the measurements of high radiation the group said it had found at 40 km from the facility could not be considered reliable.

He added that most residents in the area concerned had left and hardly anyone was living there anymore.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
