  • 'Worst scenario' on Fukushima crisis shared only by a few lawmakers

    TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Nuclear disaster minister Goshi Hosono has said "the worst scenario" on development of the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima complex, which was compiled two weeks after the crisis began, was shared only by a few lawmakers, including then Prime Minister Naoto Kan, due to fears it might cause confusion among the public.

    "The scenario was not a possibility in fact. If it had been made public at that time, it was likely that no one would have remained in Tokyo," Hosono told Kyodo News in a recent interview. "It would have caused trouble regarding the government's handling of the nuclear crisis."
