Fukushima radiation levels spike, company says

here's been a sharp spike in radiation levels measured in the pipes and containers holding water at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan.

But the company in charge of cleaning it up says that only a single drop of the highly contaminated water escaped the holding tanks.

Tokyo Electric Power Company said it is confident it can provide safety for workers dealing with the problem.

    well placed sarcasm @JI-F.
    A lot was concealed or played down following this disaster. What concerns us the most is what comes to us via the Pacific and the marine life.
