[video] “Japan struggles to cool nuclear reactors” via Al Jazeera English

Battle to stabilise Japan”s stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant are being hampered by radioactive water that is apparently leaking from the reactors, delaying efforts to cool reactors to safe levels.

Engineers have been frantically attempting to pump out puddles of radioactive water at the earthquake-crippled complex on Saturday, which exposed three workers wading through the water to so much radioactivity that they had to be hospitalised for radiation burns.

Al Jazeera”s Wayne Hay, reporting from the capital Tokyo, said efforts to cool “hot” fuel rods are facing problems.
