Japan has acknowledged for the first time that a worker at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, destroyed by an earthquake and tsunami more than seven years ago, died from radiation exposure.
The Health, Labour and Welfare Ministry ruled last Friday (Aug 31) that compensation should be paid to the family of the man in his 50s who died from lung cancer, an official told Reuters by phone.
