Unexploded WW2 bomb at Fukushima causes panic

Police have been called into investigate a 3 foot long unexploded World War Two bomb at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan.

The bomb was found by workers building a car park near the disaster zone, according to a spokesman for Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO).

Rt.com reports: Police are investigating the nature of the device and exploring disposal options if it is confirmed to contain explosives, Mainichi reports.

On March 11, 2011 a major earthquake triggered a tsunami which struck the six-reactor plant, causing serious damage. Units 1-3 went into meltdown in what was the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.
