Radiation exceeding health limits for infants was found in a Tokyo city water purifier and authorities are advising that the water not be given to babies, a Tokyo Metropolitan Government official said, confirming an earlier report by NHK public TV.

Engineers were battling to cool reactors at the six-reactor Fukushima nuclear plant in northeast Japan that was crippled by a March 11 earthquake and tsunami as concerns spread about contamination of food and water.
