TOKYO - Attempts to control a nuclear reactor that exploded after the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in northern Japan are continuing using water supply and steam release to cool it down, the top government spokesman said on Sunday.

Friday's devastation left the No.1 reactor at Tokyo Electric Power Co's Fukushima Daiichi power plant with a crippled cooling system, causing a rise in reactor temperature and pressure.

"We are doing the two things at the same time - venting air out of the reactor and supplying water into the reactor," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said.

"Radiation released in the process is low enough not to affect people's health."
