TOKYO (Reuters) - Engineers working at Tokyo Electric Power Co’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, which was badly damaged by the March 11 quake and is leaking radiation, have been evacuated following an earthquake late on Thursday, operator Tokyo Electric officials told a televised news conference.

The company said there were no irregularities at its Fukushima Daini plant, which has been shut down since the March 11 quake.
