TEPCO to review No. 1 reactor plan, NHK, May 13, 2011:

Tokyo Electric Power Company is being forced to review its strategy for stabilizing the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant after announcing that one of its reactors is in a state of “meltdown.” [...]

Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Banri Kaieda said it is a fact that the water injected into the No.1 reactor leaked away because of a hole or holes created by the meltdown.

He said this is the main reason why TEPCO’s plan needs to be reviewed.
