Ikata ­nuclear power plant : Japan reactor restarts

Japan restarted a nuclear reactor on Friday despite a court challenge by local residents, in a boost for Tokyo's faltering post-Fukushima push to bring back atomic power.

Operator Shikoku Electric Power said it switched on the No.3 reactor at its Ikata ­nuclear power plant in Ehime prefecture, about 700 kilo­meters southwest of Tokyo.

The reactor, shuttered in the wake of the March 2011 Fukushima accident, was expected to be fully operational by August 22.
