Unexploded bomb found at Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan

Fukushima nuclear plant

A suspected unexploded bomb has been found at the site of the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. The US is thought to have dropped the 89 cm-long device during World War-II.

It is found by workers building a car park at the site where a four-decade-long decommissioning process is under way.

Tens of thousands of residents had to evacuate the area after a reactor meltdown in 2011 following an earthquake and tsunami.

The incident at the Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) site was the world’s most serious nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986.

No-one died directly in the meltdown but three former Tepco executives are facing trial on charges of negligence because of deaths related to the area’s evacuation.
