Japan election campaigning begins

Many Japanese affected by last year's nuclear disaster say they are being ignored by politicians.

    Campaigning is under way in Japan ahead of general elections later this month.

    It comes more than a year after the tsunami that led to a nuclear meltdown at one of its power plants in Fukushima.

    But many of those who were affected by the disaster say they are being ignored by politicans.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Fukushima.
