Fukushima workers can't go home

Tokyo - Japanese leaders say evacuees from the area closet to the Fukushima Dai-Ichi Nuclear Power Plant will probably never be allowed to go home.

Lawmakers are abandoning plans to return 160,000 people to their homes around the facility, which was the scene of the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.
