ABC’s Foreign Correspondent Homepage (Australia), Nov. 3, 2013: Earthquakes. Tsunami. Nuclear Emergency. The chilling set of dominoes that dropped in March 2011 and devastated northern Japan have now largely coalesced into one word – Fukushima. […] For North Asia Correspondent Mark Willacy it’s been a dominant and defining story. Now – as he visits the hot-zone one last time – a new and disturbing development.

Japan: The Next Wave — ABC’s Foreign Correspondent, Nov. 3, 2013: […] In a private children’s hospital well away from the no-go-zone, parents are holding on tight to their little sons and daughters […] Tests commissioned by the local authorities have discerned an alarming spike in the incidence of thyroid cancer in Fukushima children and while specialists and experts are reluctant to draw a definitive link between the tumours and the nuclear radiation […] they’re nonetheless deeply concerned. “The doctors in Fukushima say that it shouldn’t be coming out so soon, so it can’t be related to the nuclear accident. But that’s very unscientific, and it’s not a reason we can accept.” -AKIRA SUGENOYA Former Thyroid Surgeon & Chernobyl Volunteer. […] Now [North Asia Correspondent Mark Willacy] returns a final time to investigate worrying new claims a cancer cluster has developed around the radiation zone and the victims are children.
