Protests as Japan approves Sendai reactor restart

Two reactors at Japan's Sendai nuclear plant are set to become the first to be restarted since the 2011 meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear facility.

The governor of Japan's Kagoshima prefecture gave his approval, marking the final hurdle for the restart, which is now likely to happen next year.

Protesters in the assembly hall tried to disrupt the vote and shouted as Governor Yuichiro Ito approved it.
