Japan nuclear debate on safety and energy

Crisis sparks public anger and spurs debate over country's energy policy.



    Japan's government says it may take several more months before it is able to stop the radiation leaks from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex.

    TEPCO, the power company that operates the plant, has come under increasing scrutiny from the Japanese public, as have other nuclear stations in the country.

    While people are angry at TEPCO, the government is also now forced to review its energy policy.
