A UN agency that monitors for clandestine nuclear tests said Friday it was sharing its data about radioactivity levels in Japan with the world body\’s atomic watchdog and health organisation. Officials scan people for radiation, 60 km west of the nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture, in Koriyama. After the release of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant damaged in last week\’s earthquake and tsunami, there have been calls for radioactivity readings from the specialist agency\’s network to be made available. The Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) data would enable experts to calculate the course of the plume of radiation over the Pacific to the United States and other countries. The body is normally only allowed to give the data with member states and not directly with the public. However it confirmed in a statement that it would share its monitoring data and analysis reports with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Health Organisation.
