Japanese journalist Tetsuo Jimbo made a trip inside the restricted evacuation zone near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant last week. At 17 km from the plant (about 2 minutes into the video), the Geiger counter alarms go off and remain on for the rest of the trip.

Packs of dogs and a herd of cattle can be seen roaming the abandoned streets. As the Jimbo nears the coast, the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami is apparent. Roads and buildings are destroyed.

Jimbo terminates the mission at about 1.5 km from the nuclear plant, where radiation is thousands of times above normal.

The soldiers handed out water to passing migrants, some of whom applauded the troops for allowing them to pass.

Guatemalan Migration Institute officials said some 3,000 people had crossed the border without submitting to a Covid-19 test, required for foreigners entering the country.

Trump’s plot to steal the election can be defeated — here’s how

Published

During Tuesday night's debate, Donald Trump, who has gone pure fascist, once again escalated his efforts to scare people out of voting.
