New blast at Japan reactor


Radiation is feared to have leaked after a container vessel suffered damage at the No. 2 reactor of Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant on Tuesday morning, Kyodo reported. The power company said a complete meltdown is possible at the plant, where three reactor cores are believed to have partially melted. Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said earlier that he is to head joint command center set up by the government and the power company to address issues at the plant. 据日本共同社电,日本福岛第一核电站2号反应堆周二早晨发生爆炸,反应堆容器遭损坏,人们担心核辐射可能会泄漏。电站的三个反应堆都已出现部分熔化现象,电站方面还承认,核燃料棒可能都已熔化并且毁坏。日本首相菅直人当日上午表示,政府和电厂方面将设立一个联合指挥部,由他直接领导,来处理福岛核电站面临的危机。
The official death toll from the earthquake and tsunami has risen to 3,373. At least 6,746 people are missing and 1,885 were injured, according to Japanese officials. The number of dead is expected to go up as rescuers reach more areas.
