High levels of radiation have been detected in at least 20 cars imported from Japan to a Russian port city, a media report said on Tuesday.

The cars, aboard the ‘Asian Ice’ ship, were held up at the Vladivostok port in Russia’s far east. Tests showed that the cars had radiation 1.5 to two times the normal level, says a media reported.

This is the first large shipment of cars from Japan where radiation has been detected. The cars that do not meet the safety norms will most likely be shipped back to Japan, the report said.

Intensified monitoring of the radiation situation continues in 99 stations across Russia. No radiation hazard has been forecast for Russian territories so far.
