New trouble reported at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant

Officials at the tsunami-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have detected a radioactive gas associated with fission that could indicate a problem at one of its reactors. They are injecting boric acid as a precautionary measure. -- PHOTO: REUTERS TOKYO (AP) - Officials at the tsunami-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have detected a radioactive gas associated with fission that could indicate a problem at one of its reactors. They are injecting boric acid as a precautionary measure. Gas from inside the reactor indicated the presence of radioactive Xenon, which could be the by-product of unexpected nuclear fission. The boric acid - used to control nuclear reactions - was being injected on Tuesday through a cooling pipe as a countermeasure, although it was not clear if fission had occurred.
