Radiation Is Detected At The Start of The Japan Olympics Torch Relay

Radiation has reportedly been detected near the starting point of the upcoming Olympic torch relay in Japan.

Tokyo will host the 2020 Summer Games in July, and the Japanese government was planning to start the torch relay in Fukushima, to showcase the city's recovery from a 2011 nuclear disaster. However, Greenpeace has detected radiation hotspots near the starting point.

Japan's environmental ministry has said the area, which houses the Olympic village for athletes, was "generally" safe, but Greenpeace is urging fresh radiation monitoring and continued cleanup efforts at the site.
