A Japanese ship containing elevated level of radiation in Xiamen was allowed to berth at Kwai Chung Container Terminal Friday morning after it passed a local testing.

Elevated level of radiation was detected on the ship's deck as well as on the outside surfaces of some of its containers when the ship, the Mol Presence, reached Xiamen, Fujian province on March 22.

The ship, owned by the Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, has since returned to Kobe in Japan for a clean-up.

The shipping company provided documents to Hong Kong, showing that the radiation level detected on the ship does not pose significant health risks.

Just exactly what does 'elevated levels' mean?

I watched this ship come in a few days ago. My eyes literally began to feel hot as I looked at it. Back to Japan with you then.
