Japan Finally Admits Fukushima Radiation Leaking into the Pacific

After two years of publicly denying the obvious, the General Manager of TEPCO, the company which owns and operates the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan, has admitted radiation has contaminated surrounding groundwater and is now leaking into the Pacific Ocean.

The announcement, by TEPCO GM Masayuki Ono, came in a press conference on Monday after reporters pushed for more open disclosure. Independent monitors in the area have recorded elevated levels of radioactive caesium, which have "increased by more than 100 times in just a few days."
