Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan on Tuesday said that the radiation leak from the quake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi complex is likely to spread after a fresh explosion at the plant.

Speaking at a news conference, Kan also urged people still remaining in a 30 km radius of the complex to stay inside.

Authorities had evacuated residents from within a 20 km zone after the crisis began.
