Water leaks from crippled Japanese nuclear plant (AP) – 2216th Edition

This Sunday, Dec. 4, 2011 photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) shows leakage from a purification device at the tsunami-damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okuma town, Fukushima prefecture, north of Tokyo. The nuclear power plant leaked about 45 tons of highly radioactive water from the purification device over the weekend, its operator said, and some may have drained into the ocean. The leak is a reminder of the difficulties facing TEPCO as it tries to meet its goal of bringing the tsunami-crippled nuclear power plant to a cold shutdown by year's end.
