VIENNA - An explosion on Monday at
Japan's disaster-hit nuclear plant may have damaged the primary
containment vessel of one reactor unit, the Vienna-based UN
nuclear watchdog said.
The International Atomic Energy Agency said the explosion at
the Fukushima Daiichi unit 2 "may have affected the integrity of
its primary containment vessel."
The IAEA said primary containment vessels of units 1 and 3
appeared intact despite explosions there. It said units at the
Fukushima Daini, Onagawa, and Tokai nuclear power plants were in
a safe and stable condition.
