By Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) A foreign correspondent whose career consists of traveling to dangerous regions around the world has called the area around Fukushima, Japan, one of the most hopeless places he has ever visited, likening it to a "post apocalyptic ghost town."

"I have seen abandoned villages before; most times there is a sense of finality to them," writes Arglit Boonyai, host of the weekly Channel NewsAsia show Danger Zone. "It is as though the town's time is up and the people have moved on. Fukushima is nothing like that. It's like time just stopped."
