Tokyo nuclear protest

A protestor wears a gas mask to protest against nuclear plants in front of the Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) headquarters in Tokyo on March 27, 2011 after the company’s nuclear power plant was hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami. Very high levels of radiation detected in water leaking from a reactor at a nuclear plant in Japan dealt a new setback to efforts to bring the stricken facility under control. The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi plant said it had detected radiation levels 10 million times higher than usual in leaked water at reactor two, as white steam continued to rise from the tsunami-battered facility.
