TOKYO - Less than a week after touring the radioactive rubble of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, a team of international safety inspectors on Wednesday plans to hand Japan's government a preliminary review of what triggered the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl.

The report, from an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)team led by Britain's top nuclear safety official Mike Weightman, is expected to highlight some of the well-documented weaknesses that contributed to the crisis at Fukushima when the plant, 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo, was hit by a massive earthquake and then a tsunami in quick succession on March 11.
