Japan ends dumping of nuclear plant's radioactive water into sea

TOKYO, April 11 (Reuters) - Tokyo Electric Power Co , the operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, said on Monday that it has stopped releasing low-level radioactive water into the sea from the plant.

The completion of the discharge, which TEPCO said ended on Sunday, comes amid concerns in neighbouring China and South Korea over the spread of radiation from the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl.

Nearly 10,400 tonnes of low-level radioactive water have been released into the sea, a TEPCO official told a news conference. (Reporting by Kazunori Takada)
