Japan closing final nuclear reactor
A Japanese power firm on Saturday began switching off the country’s last working reactor, a spokesman said, leaving it without nuclear power just over a year after the world’s worst atomic accident in a quarter of a century.

As technicians took the initial step to close down the No. 3 unit at Tomari in Hokkaido, the debate over whether Japan needs nuclear power has been reignited, amid increasingly shrill warnings of summer power blackouts.
