A Japanese nuclear reactor shut down automatically Thursday because of a shaking turbine, and there was no release of radioactivity. The shutdown affected a reactor at the Hamoka-cho Nuclear Power Plant, about 100 miles west of Tokyo. Turbulence in the turbine triggered the shutdown, but the report had no further details. The nuclear energy industry in Japan has been plagued by safety violations, reactor malfunctions and accident.
