Japan: French Fukushima Cartoon is 'Inappropriate Media Coverage"

The French satirical newspaper Le Canard Enchaine published cartoons on September 11, 2013 by its editorial cartoonist Cabu poking fun at Tokyo hosting the 2020 Olympics. 

Citing the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Cabu depicts sumo wrestlers with extra arms; an aftereffect of the radiation. The commentator's line is:

“Thanks to Fukushima, sumo has become an Olympic sport.”

The story is here.
