Fukushima Leak: Japan 'Working to Prevent Serious or Fatal Accident'

Japan's nuclear agency dramatically raises status after saying a day earlier that radioactive water leak was only an 'anomaly.' The operator of Japan's tsunami-crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant confirms that 300 tonnes of highly radioactive water have leaked from one of the storage tanks, and is still leaking. Tepco's spokesman, Masayuki Ono, said the water had seeped into the ground after breaching a concrete and sandbag barrier around the tank. Officials say it is possible that the nuclear plant has been leaking radioactive matter -- including caesium and strontium -- ever since it suffered a triple meltdown in March 2011
