No limit on Tepco's Fukushima compensation says Japan

Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said there would be no upper limit set on the amount of compensation paid by nuclear power plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) over the crisis at its Fukushima Daiichi power plant, according to Reuters.
 
Edano was responding to a question in a parliamentary committee about the possibility of a ceiling being placed on the compensation that TEPCO would have to pay for damages caused by the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami that ripped through the Fukushima Daiichi plant on March 11.
 
The disaster triggered the release of radiation in the world's most serious nuclear accident since Chernobyl 25 years ago.
