WHO: Contamination From Fukushima Worse Than Thought

The World Health Organization said today that radiation in Japanese food -- caused by leaks from the earthquake- and tsunami-stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant -- is more serious than previously thought. The warning comes amid signs of progress in efforts to avert a catastrophic meltdown in Fukushima's six nuclear reactors.
Engineers today managed to rig power cables to all six of Fukushima's reactors. They also started a water pump at one reactor to reverse overheating that has triggered the world's worst nuclear crisis since the Chornobyl disaster in 1986.
