Chinese authorities say trace amounts of atmospheric radiation from Japan's stricken nuclear power plant have been detected in more parts of China.
Authorities have already reported that low levels of radioactive iodine-131 were detected in the air above northeastern Heilongjiang province over the weekend. In a notice on its website Tuesday, the Environmental Protection Ministry says further traces were found over the southeastern regions of Jiangsu, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Anhui, Guangdong and Guangxi.
The ministry says the tiny amounts of iodine-131 pose no threat to public health.
The reports are the only evidence of radiation reaching China linked to the leaking Fukushima nuclear plant, damaged by the massive March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
