  • Another Japanese nuclear reactor to be halted

    Tokyo (dpa) – A Japanese power plant operator said Friday that it would suspend a nuclear reactor in Ehime prefecture, western Japan, for regular checkups, which would leave only five of the nation’s 54 reactors in service.

    Shikoku Electric Power Co said Friday it would halt reactor 2 of its Ikata Nuclear Power Plant on January 13, bringing the three-reactor plant, the only one on Shikoku Island, to a complete suspension for the first time since 1994.
