Radiation found on Japanese ship entering China
China detected abnormal radiation levels on a Japanese merchant ship entering the port at Xiamen.
Beijing: China has detected what it said were "abnormal" radiation levels on a Japanese merchant ship entering the port at Xiamen in eastern Fujian province, the country's quality and inspection watchdog said on Friday.
The report did not say how high the radiation levels were on the ship, which belongs to Mitsui OSK Lines, or whether it had been turned away, Xinhua news agency reported.
A notice, dated March 22, was posted on the General Administration of Quality Supervision and Inspection website, saying a ship from the same company was docked in port at Xiamen, but it was not clear whether the reference was to the same Japanese ship or whether it had since departed.
The agency has said it will monitor for higher than normal radiation on imported goods following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that triggered a crisis at Japanese nuclear plants.
