Radioactive water spilled into sea

TOKYO: Japanese workers struggling to contain a crisis at a crippled nuclear plant discovered Saturday a crack in a pit leaking highly radioactive water straight into the sea, the firm operating the facility said. As emergency crew members rushed to cement the crack, the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said it is also preparing to take samples from the ocean near the Fukushima nuclear plant to determine the level of contamination. "Today, at about 9:30 am (0030 GMT), workers found that some water, with a radioactivity of 1,000 millisievert per hour, had accumulated in a pit near reactor number two's water intake facility," a TEPCO official said. "They then found that a 20 centimetre (eight-inch) crack had emerged in the pit and that radioactive water was leaking directly into the sea." TEPCO plans to fill in the crack, while checking radiation levels in sea water at three...
