Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano says he has strongly instructed Tokyo Electric Power Company to avoid the release of erroneous data on radiation leaks at its troubled nuclear power plant.

TEPCO on Sunday corrected an earlier announcement about the radiation levels in water leaking from the Number 2 reactor's turbine building, saying a water analysis had been incorrect.

Edano said radiation analyses serve as the basis for ensuring safety at the plant, where workers are struggling to safely cool the reactors and other machinery.

He said he also urged TEPCO to secure adequate back-up personnel for the workers.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
