Fukushima still a threat: senior officials, EuroNews, April 29, 2011:
Two senior Japanese officials have warned that there is still a real risk of a catastrophic disaster at the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant.
Since Japan’s devastating earthquake and tsunami seven weeks ago an army of emergency workers has stabilised two of its six reactors but the other four remain volatile. [...]
The operator of the plant TEPCO has been accused of playing down the potential dangers and ignoring warnings about the risk of an earthquake and tsunami striking Fukushima.
