IAEA team in Japan to observe massive cleanup

It is the second major IAEA mission to Japan since the nuclear crisis began.



Tokyo: Experts from the International Atomic
Energy Agency have arrived in the Japanese city of Fukushima
to observe the massive decontamination effort under way there
after the world`s worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.

The 12-member IAEA group arrived today and plans to visit
farms, schools and government offices throughout Fukushima
prefecture in north-eastern Japan.

It is the second major IAEA mission to Japan since the
nuclear crisis began.

Nearly 20,000 people were killed when the earthquake and
tsunami hit Japan on March 11. The disaster severely damaged
the Fukushima plant. Officials say the plant is now relatively
stable, but tens of thousands of people still cannot return to
their homes because of the radioactive contamination.
