Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan has declared a plan which prevents people from returning to evacuated areas around the disaster-stricken Fukushima nuclear plant.
Kan made the announcement on Thursday saying the no-go zone covers an area of 20 kilometers (12 miles).
“The designation of the zone as off-limits is aimed at enhancing government control of the area to which evacuees have been temporarily returning home on their own to collect belongings despite fears of radiation, which continues to leak from the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi plant," a report said.'
