IAEA demonstrates aerial radiation monitor
The International Atomic Energy Agency has demonstrated an unmanned aerial vehicle designed to measure radiation levels in areas too dangerous for humans to access.
The aircraft on Monday hovered over Fukushima City near the site of the 2011 nuclear accident.

TEPCO to cut power bills, restart nuclear plant
Tokyo Electric Power Company is drawing up a business plan to cut electricity rates by restarting all the reactors at a nuclear power plant in central Japan.
TEPCO raised the rates to cover its losses after the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in 2011. The increases averaged about 8.5 percent for households, and 17 percent for businesses.
But the plan TEPCO is drawing up includes reactivating all seven reactors at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in Niigata Prefecture over the next several years.

Seabed contamination research to start on Monday
Researchers plan to investigate radioactive contamination in the seabed off the coast of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
This time, the research will cover about 700 kilometers, which is 5 times wider than the last test.
