Recommended Posts

TOKYO, April 25 (UPI) -- A 40-year-old man who allegedly piloted a drone carrying radioactive material to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's office was arrested Saturday, Japanese police said.

Yasuo Yamamoto, 40, of Obama, Japan, said he was protesting the government's nuclear energy policy. He turned himself in to Fukui Prefecture police and is being held on a charge of forcible obstruction of official business.

No one was hurt when the drone carrying a plastic bottle of sand landed on the roof of Abe's office. It was discovered Wednesday. Abe was out of the country at the time.

I wonder where he got the radioactive sand and wouldn't he be at risk for handling it?

'High level' of radiation detected in Tokyo park'

The park, in the Toshima ward in central Tokyo, has been fenced off.

Authorities recorded up to 480 microsieverts per hour at one spot - nearly half the recommended annual limit of exposure for a person.

The incident comes days after a drone with traces of radiation landed on top of the prime minister's office.
-----

Japan's NHK reported that local officials had received a call about suspected radioactivity at the Tokyo park on Wednesday.

Following two rounds of testing, officials found high levels of radiation on a section of the playground equipment.

Authorities believe that the radiation could be coming from something buried underneath the park.
