VIENNA - The UN atomic agency will send a fact-finding mission to Japan's crippled Fukushima power plant next week, as part of efforts to help boost global safety standards after the worst nuclear disaster in 25 years.

Nearly 20 experts from a dozen countries will take part in the May 24-June 2 visit to Japan to make a preliminary assessment of safety issues linked to the Fukushima accident, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said on Tuesday.
