TEPCO: to sound out residents' views on No. 5, 6 reactors

TOKYO, March 30 (Reuters) - 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 Daini plant.

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.
