Japan’s TEPCO to release radioactive water into sea

TOKYO, April 4 (Reuters) – Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO)
said on Monday it would release more than 10,000 tonnes
of contaminated water from its crippled Fukushima nuclear plant
into the sea to free up more storage space for water that had
much higher levels of radioactivity.

The water to be released was about 100 times more
radioactive than legal limits.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said there was no other
choice but to release the water.
