Revised textbooks spark row in Japan

Education ministry irks parents with controversial view on nuclear technology in wake of Fukushima fallout.

    For the first time in 30 years, Japan's government is re-introducing the topic of radiation in classrooms.

    Students living near the Fukushima nuclear plant have been given text books that include the topic but parents and teachers say the books are nothing more than pro-nuclear propaganda.
