Amano downplays Fukushima disaster

  • Amano downplays Fukushima disaster

    IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano has presented himself on the international stage as champion of the global agenda, taking what appear to be tough moral stands on issues like nuclear weapons proliferation.

    However, there are many in his own native country of Japan who question this official's behavior, especially as it relates to the unprecedented disaster of three nuclear reactors melting down at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

    Hisako Sakiyama is one of Japan's most respected independent medical experts on the effects of radiation.
