Japan PM wants Fukushima plant entirely scrapped

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, second right, wearing a red helmet, is briefed about a chemical dam by Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant chief Akira Ono, second left, as he inspects an area along the coast between the No. 1 and No. 2 reactors during his tour to the tsunami-crippled plant in Okuma, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan, Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013. During his three-hour tour, Abe was shown some of the 1,000 tanks containing radioactive water, a water treatment equipment and the chemical dam being installed along the coast — steps meant to contain the radiation-contaminated water leakage.
