Japan government in Fukushima clean-up

Authorities to get directly involved in containing radioactive water at Fukushima power plant.

    The Japanese government will get directly involved in containing rising levels of radioactive water at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant instead of relying solely on the operator, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Wednesday.

    Shortly after Abe's pledge, the government revealed that approximately 300 tonnes of contaminated water has been leaking from the crippled nuclear reactors on a daily basis.
