Fresh leak detected at Fukushima nuclear power plant

Sensors at the Fukushima nuclear plant detect a fresh leak of highly radioactive water going into the sea. The higher-than-normal levels of contamination were detected on Sunday, with sensors showing radiation levels 50 to 70 times greater than usual. Though contamination levels fell steadily throughout the day, the same sensors were still showing contamination levels about 10 to 20 times more than usual, a company spokesman said. It was not immediately clear what caused the original spike of the contamination and its gradual fall, he said.
