Japan beachgoers defy radioactive threat

More people flock to Iwaki city during holidays despite continuous leakage from nearby Fukushima nuclear plant.

Japanese media have reported that prosecutors are unlikely to indict the operators of the Fukushima nuclear plant more than two years after it was crippled by a tsunami.

There is still a 20km exclusion zone around the plant and it is still leaking radioactive material at significant levels.

However, some Japanese are defying the threat by visiting nearby beaches in the city of Iwaki over the summer holidays.
