A Japanese court ordered Thursday the suspension of the Tokai No. 2 nuclear power plant amid persisting public safety concerns over nuclear power generation 10 years after the Fukushima Daiichi accident. In a civil lawsuit at the Mito District Court, residents of Ibaraki and surrounding prefectures demanded Japan Atomic Power Co. stop operation of the power plant in the eastern Japan prefecture.
