Fukushima nuclear plant shut for good
Tokyo, Mar 20(ANI): The earthquake and tsunami-hit Fukushima nuclear plant will never operate again as a power station, the Japanese government has said.
Japanese government spokesman Yukio Edano said that the plant, which has six reactors, will eventually be scrapped once the emergency is brought under control, the Australian reports.
Edano said that the plant will be in no condition to be restarted after corrosive seawater was pumped into the reactors to help control the overheating core.
Meanwhile, the police said that 15,000 people may have been killed in a single prefecture, Miyagi, by the earthquake and tsunami which struck nine days ago.
The announcement came as the official death toll rose to 8,133, with 12,272 people missing. (ANI)
