Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said it would shut down two more reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan, according to the BBC.

Units 5 and 6 were not badly damaged after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, but the public has wanted the entire six-unit power plant to shut down. TEPCO is currently removing fuel rods from Unit 4, which is the first step in decommissioning the plant.
