IAEA (UN’s nuclear agency) now is in big rush for an urgent meeting with Japanese authorities after a breech in number two reactor and other serious incidents at Fukushima.

Maybe too little, too late.

 

 

[EXTRACTS]

The United Nations’ nuclear agency will call an emergency meeting to discuss the crisis in Japan as a breach at the stricken Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant increased the risk of a radioactive leak.

IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano is flying to Tokyo to talk with authorities today and will return for the meeting as soon as possible, he told reporters in Vienna yesterday. It will be the first extraordinary meeting of the agency’s 35-member board since his election to succeed Mohamed ElBaradei two years ago.
