VIENNA - Japan has told the UN atomic agency that 28 nuclear workers have received high radiation doses as they battle to stabilize the stricken Fukushima Daiichi power plant.

Of the 300 people at the site, which was hit by an earthquake and tsunami a month ago, 28 have accumulated doses of more than 100 millisieverts (mSv), the International Atomic Energy Agency said, citing data from Japanese authorities.

"No worker has received a dose above Japan's guidance value of 250 mSv for restricting the exposure of emergency workers," the Vienna-based IAEA said on Friday.
