"Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan has called for his country to develop into a nuclear-free society, amid rising public anger at the continuing crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. In a televised news conference, Mr Kan said the country should harness renewable energy sources. The 11 March earthquake and tsunami wrecked the Fukushima plant, which continues to leak radioactive material. A large section of public opinion has turned against nuclear power." (07/13/11)
