Children with internal radiation, and another earthquake

Two new stories in the last hour or so:

Global Security Newswire just reported: http://www.globalsecuritynewswire.org/gsn/nw_20110819_6483.php

Radiation turned up inside nearly half of more than 1,000 young people tested in the vicinity of Japan’s damaged Fukushima Daiichi atomic energy facility, the Asahi Shimbun reported on Thursday.

And this just in from Huffington Post:

A magnitude-6.8 earthquake struck off Japan’s northeastern coast Friday, triggering a tsunami advisory that was later lifted. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries in the temblor, which rattled the area devastated earlier this year by a massive quake and tsunami.

The 2:36 p.m. (0536 GMT) quake was centered about 185 miles (300 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo and at a depth of 12 miles (20 kilometers), slightly south of where the magnitude-9.0 temblor struck March 11, Japan’s Meteorological Agency said.
