Japan protests over French Fukushima cartoon

FILE - In this Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2013 file photo, Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga speaks at the first Cabinet meeting on decommissioning nuclear reactors and control of radiation-contaminated water leak at the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Dai-ich nuclear power plant, at the prime minister's official residence in Tokyo. Suga said Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013 that Tokyo was to formally complain the weekly paper Le Canard Enchaine over a cartoon which he said insulted those affected by the March 2011 disaster. He said the expression misrepresented Fukushima’s plant conditions. The French newspaper cartoon is depicting sumo wrestlers with extra limbs fighting in front of the crippled nuclear power plant and linking it to Tokyo’s successful bid to host the 2020 Olympics.
