US warships, planes move from Japan's nuclear-crisis coast

TOKYO, March 14 (Reuters) - U.S. warships and planes helping Japan’s earthquake and tsunami relief efforts have moved away from the country’s Pacific coast temporarily because of low-level radiation from a stricken nuclear power plant, the U.S. Navy said on Monday.

The U.S. Seventh Fleet, in a statement, described the move as precautionary measure.
