Fukushima Owners: Disaster Could Have Been Prevented

The owners of the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan admitted on Friday that it was possible to prevent the nuclear disaster which struck the plant after an earthquake and tsunami in March of 2011.

The owners admitted that it was possible to improve the security measures at the plant. "Had we done this before the tsunami hit, many lives would have been saved," they said. They added that the changes were not carried out for political, economic and legal reasons.
