AP – Japanese officials try using army helicopter flights Thursday to dump water on an overheated reactor at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex disabled by last week’s tsunami. They are evaluating if the unusual measure is working. At the same reactor, soldiers sprayed 30 tons of water toward a pool where used fuel is stored, hoping to cool it and keep it from catching fire. Police failed in an earlier attempt to cool the pool with water cannons.
