Japan using Fukushima aid to fund whale hunting


The Japanese government is using 2.3 billion yen, or $29 million, from its 18 trillion yen tsunami reconstruction fund to help pay for the country's annual whale hunt. A Japanese Fisheries Agency defended this spending, saying that the money will help Japan's whaling industry and economy in general. Greenpeace slammed the allocation of funds, saying that disaster victims would suffer as a result. [AP]
