IAEA: Japan raises incident level at nuclear site

VIENNA - Japan has raised the incident level at a disaster-hit nuclear power reactor, the UN nuclear watchdog reported on a monitoring website on Friday.
The entry gave the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi site a level 5 rating, up from level 4 previously on a 1-7 scale.
That would suggest a level of seriousness on par with the Three Mile Island accident in the United States in 1979.
