  • Water leaks at 14 points at Fukushima complex

    TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Sunday water leaks from 14 points at the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant's facilities have been found, leading the operator to suspend the cooling of the spent fuel pool at its No. 4 reactor for two hours.

    The leakage is believed to have been caused by freezing due to cold weather, and the leaked water included radioactively contaminated water that has been purified, the utility known as TEPCO said, adding the contamination level is low.
