Japan starts fuel removal from nuclear plant

The operator of Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant has begun removing nuclear fuel from a building housing one of the reactors that melted down after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Remotely controlled equipment is lifting fuel rods from a storage pool near reactor number three. The delicate work at the contaminated site is expected to take two years. The next phase of the huge clean-up at reactor three will be to remove molten nuclear fuel that remains deep inside.
