Fukushima Plant Leaking Radioactive Water Again

JAPAN POOL/AFP/Getty Images(TOKYO) -- Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is leaking more radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean, the plant’s operator said Thursday.

Officials caught the problem overnight.

Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima plant, apologized “to the residents nearby and broader society for the extreme anxiety and inconvenience caused by this matter.”

It’s the second leak there in less than two months.
