Tokyo Electric Power Company says it has determined that water containing radioactive substances leaked from a tank at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant for more than two years. The company says there is no impact on the environment.
The utility says workers discovered water from an unknown source in an underground tunnel on January 10th at the plant.
Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force says the misfiring of a mortar shell during training last month was due to failed safety checks. Nineteen personnel are being penalized for the incident.
The shell landed near a national highway near the GSDF training ground in Shiga Prefecture in western Japan. No one was injured but a vehicle was damaged by debris.
