Radiation leak found outside Japan nuclear reactor: partial meltdown of fuel rods

Highly radioactive water has been found for the first time outside one of the reactor buildings at Japan's quake-hit Fukushima nuclear plant, officials say.

The leak in a tunnel linked to the No 2 reactor has raised fears of radioactive liquid seeping into the environment. Officials said the radiation scare inside the No 2 reactor was caused by a partial meltdown of fuel rods. Source: BBC News
