Radiation in Japan plant tunnel water 10,000 times over normal

TOKYO (Reuters) – Radiation in water of an underground tunnel outside a turbine building of No.2 reactor at Japan’s crippled nuclear complex was more than 10,000 times above normal levels in reactors, the plant operator was quoted by Kyodo news agency as saying Thursday.

The operator also found radiation in groundwater near a turbine building of the No.1 reactor of the Fukushima Daiichi plant, Kyodo added. And an abnormal level of radioactive cesium has been found in beef from the area, it said.
