Hazuki Oka (R), from Minamisoma in Fukushima, waits for her turn while her brother Yukinari undergoes a screening test for signs of nuclear radiation by a doctor at a health center in Yonezawa, northern Japan, 98 km (61 miles) from the Fukushima nuclear plant, March 22, 2011. Oka's house is almost 25km from the plant and Hazuki and Yukinari didn't show harmful levels of radiation. The world's worst nuclear crisis in 25 years was triggered by a huge earthquake and tsunami on March 11 that left at least 21,000 people dead or missing.
