Japan goes for more nuclear reactor

The operator of Japan’s tsunami-ravaged nuclear plant says it is repairing four reactors at a less-damaged nearby plant despite demands from local residents that it be scrapped.

Community leaders have demanded that Tokyo Electric Power Co. decommission all reactors at both the badly damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi and nearby Fukushima Dai-ni nuclear plant. TEPCO says it will decommission four reactors at the Dai-ichi plant. But TEPCO President Naomi Hirose said Wednesday it hasn’t decided on the fate of the Dai-ni plant.

The Dai-ni plant was hit by a smaller tsunami and suffered less damage, but residents fear it is unsafe.
