Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said on Monday that a 20km (12 miles) evacuation may need to be extended in some areas after data on accumulated radiation is fully assessed.

Extensions to the exclusion zone around the Fukushima Daiichi plant will depend on how much accumulated radiation has been detected in each area, Edano added.

Some 5,000 residents in Iitate village, 40 km from the plant, have already been told to prepare to evacuate, with local media reporting the evacuation may not take place for a month.
