TOKYO, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Japan's government has decided to
release treated water containing radioactive substances from the
Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant into the sea, Jiji news agency
and other media reported on Friday.
A formal decision is expected to be made within this month,
the reports said.
Tokyo Electric has collected more than a million
tonnes of contaminated water since the plant was crippled by an
earthquake and tsunami in 2011.
