Fukushima: High Radiation Detected Outside The 20 Kilometer Evacuation Zone

High radiation has been detected at a village 40 kilometer from the Fukushima plant, according to the IAEA. Japan has encouraged evacuations only within a 20 kilometer radius. The finding will increase pressure on the government to extend the zone. Two weeks ago Washington had already advised Americans within an 80 kilometer radius to evacuate. EARLIER: Radioactive iodine at a concentration of 3,355 times the legal limit was identified in a seawater sample near the plant, Japan's nuclear safety agency said Wednesday. This is the highest contamination level yet.
