TEPCO: to compensate local govts on radiation, evacuation

TOKYO, April 5 (Reuters) - Japan’s nuclear plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co said on Tuesday that it would compensate local governments for damage from radiation and evacuations after a series of accidents at its tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

A TEPCO official said it had not decided on how many cities, towns and villages it would pay or on the compensation amount.
