Japan’s earthquake-stricken nuclear complex is still emitting radiation but the source is unclear, a senior UN atomic agency official said, as workers made progress restoring electric power to the site.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) also raised concerns about lack of information from Japanese authorities, as workers battling to cool the nuclear reactors faced rising temperatures around the core of one reactor. James Lyons, a senior official of the IAEA had briefed to the Press in Vienna on the 22nd of March 2011 that they continue to see radiation from the site but still from where it s coming is unknown. In spite of hopes of progress in the world’s worst nuclear crisis in a quarter of a century, triggered by an earthquake and tsunami that left at least twenty one thousand people dead or missing, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) said it needed more time before it could say the reactors were stabilized. Senior IAEA official Graham Andrew said that the overall situation remained very serious and that the UN atomic watchdog was concerned it had not received some information from Japan about the Fukushima nuclear plant that they are trying to collect and hope for the best.The IAEA also lacks data on the temperatures of the spent fuel pools of Reactors 1, 3 and 4, he said, though Japan was supplying other updates. Technicians working inside an evacuation zone around the plant on Japan’s northeast Pacific coast, two hundred fifty km north of Tokyo, have attached power cables to all six reactors and started a pump at one to cool overheating nuclear fuel rods.Let us join to pray for all the best to our brorhers and sisters in Japan who are in the state of grief and turmoil due to the severe earthquake & tsunami that Japan had suffered on March 11,2011 that took toll of over twenty thousand People and many were left homeless and penniless due to that great natual calamity!
