MAY 4, 2011- A police officer signals a vehicle to stop as it leaves the exclusion zone at a check point on the border of the exclusion zone in Minami Soma, Fukushima, Japan. The officers all from Tohoku have been on duty for a month and will return home today. A 9.0 Earthquake and Tsunami damaged the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear power causing a nuclear accident that was upgraded to a level 7 nuclear accident. Residents within the 20km exclusion zone have evacuated those within the 20-30 km zone have been told to stay indoors. (Photo by B.Meyer-Kenny/2.0 Images)
