WASHINGTON - The US military did not provide any coolant for a Japanese nuclear plant affected by a massive earthquake on Friday, US officials said.

Earlier, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said US Air Force "assets" in Japan had delivered coolant to a nuclear plant. One US official said Japan had asked the United States for the coolant but ultimately handled the matter on its own.
