TOKYO, March 30 Tokyo Electric Power ,
the operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear
complex, said it will sound out the opinions of the government
and local residents on whether to continue operating the plant's
No. 5 and No. 6 reactors, as well as the companion Fukushima
Tokyo Electric Chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata had said the
Daiichi plant's other four reactors, which have been emitting
radiation after suffering damage from a devastating earthquake
and tsunami, would be scrapped.
The Daiichi No. 5 and 6 reactors and the Daini plant have
been safely shut down.
