World - Japan nuclear regulator clears first reactors after safety checks

Japan cleared the way on Wednesday for a resumption of nuclear power, four years after the world`s worst atomic disaster in two-and-a-half decades led to the shutdown of all the country`s reactors and fueled public opposition to the industry. Regulators said Kyushu Electric Power Co`s two-reactor Sendai nuclear plant had cleared safety hurdles introduced after a huge earthquake and tsunami triggered meltdowns and explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in 2011. The Sendai plant, in southwestern Japan, still needs to go through operational checks before a restart but these are expected to be completed without major hitches.

By Tony Jimenez VIRGINIA WATER, England, May 22 (Reuters) - Alvaro Quiros had the golfing world at his feet in 2011 but the big-hitting Spaniard seems a tortured soul these days and it is clear his self belief has been battered by three seasons of toil and pain. Quiros triumphed six times in a golden spell between 2007 and 2011, the highlight victory coming at the prestigious end-of-season DP World Tour Championship in Dubai four years ago. `It`s been a very frustrating time,` the 6-foot-4 (1.91-metre) Quiros told Reuters in an interview after posting a four-under-par 68 for a two-under total of 142 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Friday.
