Pokémon Go players urged not to venture into Fukushima disaster zone

Japan is asking for the Fukushima nuclear exclusion zone to be classified as a no-go area for Pokémon after the discovery of at least one of the game’s characters on a power station’s site. Japan’s nuclear regulator sent out a warning to national energy providers telling them to tighten security after the incursion of three teenagers into a nuclear power plant in Ohio in the US. Tepco has banned employees from playing Pokémon Go on site. This is yet another extreme situation that can come from this new Internet sensation. What other dangerous sites might this game get people into trouble with? Should companies ban their employees from playing this game during working hours? What trouble could come from playing the game? Is it all unnecessary fuss?
