Japan facing 'nuclear nightmare'

Series of explosions at nuclear plant prompt prime minister to warn radiation may spread.

    Japan is facing a nuclear nightmare after a series of explosions at a power station. The country's prime minister is warning that radiation from the Fukushima power plant is likely to spread.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency says radioactive material has leaked into the atmosphere.

    Anyone living within 20km of the site has been warned to move away, and those 10km beyond are advised to stay indoors.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from the Iwate prefecture.
