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

TOKYO, March 31 (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 on 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 caesium
has been found in beef from the area, it said.
