Japan stopped highly radioactive water leaking into the sea on Wednesday from a crippled nuclear plant, a breakthrough in the battle to contain the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl, but contaminated water was still be pumped into the ocean.

Analysts said the damaged reactors, whose fuel rods operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) is desperately trying to cool, were still not under control almost a month after they were hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami.




TEPCO said it had stemmed the radioactive leak using liquid glass at one of six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in northeast Japan that were damaged on March 11.
