Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ordered the operator of the country's crippled nuclear power plant Thursday to scrap all six reactors at the site instead of just four already slated for decommissioning and to concentrate on tackling pressing issues such as radioactive water leaks.
Troubles continue at Japan's tsunami-damaged nuclear reactor, as the Fukushima facility was hit by a two-hour power delay — its second shutdown in a month.
A major international mission to investigate Japan's flooded, radiation-leaking nuclear complex began as new information suggested that nuclear fuel had mostly melted in two more reactors in the early days after the March 11 tsunami.
Small business owners and laborers forced to leave their homes and jobs because of radiation leaking from Japan's tsunami-flooded nuclear plant rode a bus all the way to Tokyo on Wednesday to demand compensation from the plant's operator.
