In Japan, an elderly woman and her teenage grandson have been rescued from the wreckage of their home in north-east Japan, nine days after the massive earthquake and tsunami. The story of survival has provided welcome good news, as the death toll from the March 11 quake-tsunami disaster topped 21,000 over the weekend. But food contaminated with radiation has been found for the first time outside Japan, where milk and spinach have already been tainted by a plume from the Dai-Ichi reactors at Fukushima. Taiwan detected radioactivity in a batch of imported Japanese fava beans. Public anxiety is high, with many reports that the Japanese people don’t trust the information authorities are giving them, but community radio has been credited with continuing to broadcast throughout the disaster, bringing people regular updates on the situation. Catherine Zengerer spoke to Katsuya Soda, who is host of a community radio program, Namin Now. Catherine asked him what Namin means, and how the Japanese people are coping with the situation.
