Radioactive water leak at Fukushima plant

TOKYO, Japan – Handout photo shows radioactive water leaking to the sea from a crack in the wall of a pit near the water intake of the No. 2 reactor at the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture on April 5, 2011. The photo was taken prior to the injection of ”water glass,” or sodium silicate, by the plant operator into gravel areas beneath the pit’s bottom, where radioactive water is believed to be seeping through, in an attempt to halt the leak. The water is colored white as the operator also poured in white bath agents to trace the route of flow. (Photo courtesy of Tokyo Electric Power Co.)(Kyodo)
