Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The UN nuclear watchdog has decided to dispatch a marine environment expert to Fukushima to analyze seawater surrounding the troubled nuclear power plant.

Participants at an International Atomic Energy Agency meeting in Vienna on Wednesday agreed to send an additional staff member from the Marine Environment Laboratory in Monaco to Japan this week.

The decision is in response to a request by the Japanese government. It comes as seawater near the Fukushima Daiichi power plant has been found to contain high levels of radiation.

The specialist will join Japanese experts on board a survey ship on Saturday to assess the radiation levels in waters surrounding the power plant.

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