Japan nuclear crisis reaches new levels

Japan's nuclear crisis may have taken its most dangerous turn yet after a US official said one of the pools containing highly radioactive spent fuel rods at the stricken plant had run dry.

Triggering the new levels of alarm were comments by U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jaczko in Congress. "There is no water in the spent fuel pool and we believe that radiation levels are extremely high, which could possibly impact the ability to take corrective measures," he said.

Japanese officials have been working desperately for two days to try to get more water into the pool to cover the rods, which remain hot for months after they are removed from the reactors and can quickly release radioactive components if exposed to the air.
