» 20 km of evacuation zone will be allowed to stay overnight

Residents of an evacuation zone within 20 kilometers of the disaster-struck Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant are allowed to stay overnight as well at their homes following progress in radiation cleanup work.

Previously, the area’s residents had been allowed to spend only the day inside the evacuation zone.

The change means the residents will be free to spend the entire 24-hour day at home, for the next three months, after which the evacuation order may be lifted permanently.
