People opposed to the restart of the Sendai nuclear power plant in southern Japan scuffled with city officials when they tried to enter a room where the city assembly's special panel was meeting.

After the panel adopted a petition calling for the restart of the plant, people gathered in front of the Satsumasendai city hall to protest the decision.

Residents are divided over whether the Sendai nuclear plant should resume operations.

A hotel worker says she wants the plant to return online soon because it is the pillar of the local economy.

A man says nuclear plants need to be restarted to ensure a steady energy supply. He says he recently visited the plant and was impressed by the safety measures that have been implemented.

An 82-year-old woman says the assembly seems intent on restarting the plant soon. She says officials should take more time to ensure that future generations are able to live without worries.

Another woman says the officials are acting too hastily in making their decision before the prefecture concludes its public briefings.

She says more discussions are needed, but that she is worried because officials seem to be rushing to restart the plant.
