SEOUL -- A team of South Korean nuclear experts returned home Sunday after a tour of nuclear facilities in Fukushima, in the latest sign of broadening cooperation between Seoul and Tokyo.

After landing, Yoo Guk-hee, the leader of the group, said he and colleagues had observed conditions in key facilities and requested data from Japanese authorities for further analysis.
