TAKAHAMA, JAPAN - JUNE 27: (CHINA OUT, SOUTH KOREA OUT) In this aerial image, a freighter carrying mixed oxide (MOX) fuel runs towards Kansai Electric Power Co Takahama Nuclear Power Plant, escorted by 10 or so coast guard and police vessels on June 27, 2013 in Takahama, Fukui, Japan. Protesters oppose outside the plant as this is the first shipment of MOX fuel since the meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant arrived in Japan, which plutonium stockpile is already equivalent to 5,000 Nagasaki-type atomic bombs.
