"Scientists from Norway, Austria, Spain and the United States have found 'strong evidence' that the Great East Japan earthquake of the unprecedented magnitude of 9 caused 'structural damage' to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, emitting radioactive Xenon gas, before the tsunami tidal wave brought a train of havoc," says the report.
