Seized smuggled sugar
eyed for Japan aid: SRA


Sugar Regulatory Administrator Ma. Regina Martin yesterday said more container vans containing smuggled sugar have been discovered at the Manila International Container Port, and the seized commodity may be sent to Japan as part of the Philippines’ assistance to the earthquake-hit country.

The sugar industry has recommended the donation of the seized sugar to Japan but this will need approval of the national government, she said.

Martin  said numerous container vans of smuggled sugar have been seized, the latest of which were 34 at the Manila International Port.moremoremore

alert level raised

TOKYO – UN International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano said yesterday that Japan's battle to stabilize a crippled nuclear power plant was "a race against time".

Speaking in Tokyo, 250 kilometers away from the stricken Fukushima Number One plant, Amano also said the IAEA had brought its own monitoring equipment to test for radiation levels in the Japanese capital.

"This is a very grave and serious accident," he said after meeting Prime Minister Naoto Kan, referring to the explosions and fires that have hit the plant where workers were using fire engines to douse overheating fuel rods.moremoremore
