Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has begun transferring highly radioactive water from the No.2 reactor to a waste processing facility.

Ahead of the operation, Tokyo Electric Power Company, known as TEPCO, sealed cracks in the walls of the facility and ensured that other measures were in place to prevent contaminated water from leaking.

After the government's nuclear safety agency checked procedures and safety measures, TEPCO began the operation on Tuesday morning.

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