Feds break up $18M Los Angeles-area Medicare scam

LOS ANGELES-October 28, 2011 Tokyo's Setagaya city council had detected radioactivity exceeding that of an evacuation area about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant at a roadside spot after concerned parents monitoring for radiation sought further tests.

It said Thursday the cause is most likely the unspecified content of several old bottles, not the tsunami-hit nuclear plant. It says radioactivity from the bottles exceeded the measurable limit on a low-dose counter.

Police are investigating the possible illegal possession of radioactive materials.

Officials say exposures at the spot wouldn't pose a health danger.
