Toxic water leak at Japan’s nuclear plant

Radioactive water was found leaking at Japan’s tsunami-hit Fukushima nuclear plant earlier today.

A statement released by the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO), said the contaminated water could have leaked into the ground from one of the plant’s storage tanks.
