One of Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan's advisers on the Fukushima nuclear crisis resigned in tears on Friday in protest at what he called the government's haphazard handling of the situation.

"The prime minister's office and administrative organizations have made impromptu policy decisions, like playing a whack-a-mole game, ignoring proper procedures," adviser Toshiso Kosako, a professor of antiradiation safety at the University of Tokyo's graduate school, told a news conference.
