A liquor store owner in Okuma, Fukushima Prefecture, who had to evacuate after the nuclear crisis, returned home briefly Sunday to find his shop looted.
"All my goods, all the money from the register, all the money from the vending machines, my safe...they've all been stolen. I didn't think we had many criminals living in this area. It's infuriating," he said.
The man was one of 322 residents of towns such as Okuma and Namie, which are within five kilometers of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi power plant. The group were allowed to return to their homes and businesses on Saturday and Sunday for the first time since the evacuation.© Compiled from news reports
