Japan's Nuclear Disaster and Anti-Nuclear Protests

Japan's nuclear safety officials have reprimanded the operator of the country's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant and demanded an investigation into how two workers were exposed to radiation more than twice the legally permitted level of radiation.

Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas reports from Sendai on the anti-nuclear protests in Japan.

Protesters in Tokyo held mass demonstrations Saturday against the use of nuclear power, as Japanese marked the three-month anniversary of the powerful earthquake and tsunami that killed tens of thousands and triggered one of the world's worst nuclear disasters.
