TOKYO---The operator of Japan s
Fukushima nuclear plant said
yesterday that 100 metric tons of
highly contaminated water had
leaked out of a tank, the worst
incident since last August, when
a series of radioactive water leaks
sparked international alarm.
Tokyo Electric Power Co told
reporters the latest leak was unlike-
ly to have reached the ocean. But
news of the leak at the site, dev-
astated by a 2011 earthquake and
tsunami, further undercut public
trust in a utility rocked by a string
of mishaps and disclosure issues.
"We are taking various meas-
ures, but we apologise for worrying
the public with such a leak," said
Masayuki Ono, a spokesman for
the utility, also known as Tepco.
"Water is unlikely to have
reached the ocean as there is no
drainage in that tank area."
Tepco said water overflowed
from a large storage tank at the
site late on Wednesday after a valve
had remained open by mistake and
sent too much contaminated water
into a separate holding area.
The utility has been harshly crit-
icised for its response to the three
nuclear meltdowns following the
quake and tsunami at the plant,
130 miles north of Tokyo.
New highly radioactive
leak at Fukushima
TOKYO---Japan s government said yesterday it may
re-examine a 20-year-old study that led to a land-
mark apology over forced prostitution during World
War II, in a sign it is leaning toward a denial that
officials were involved in organising sex slavery.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, the official
government spokesman, said it may decide to verify
the accuracy of interviews with 16 South Korean
women who said they were forced to serve as pros-
titutes for Japan s wartime military.
Although numbers vary, some historians say as
many as 200,000 women from across Asia, most of
them Koreans, were forced to serve as sex slaves,
called "comfort women" in Japan, for frontline sol-
Japanese nationalists have long insisted that women
in wartime brothels were voluntary prostitutes, not
sex slaves, and that Japan has been unfairly criticised
for a practice they say is common in any country at
The interviews, conducted by Japanese officials in
1993 at the request of South Korea s government as
part of a broader investigation by Japan, were key
to a statement in which Japan apologised later that
year. A reversal of that apology would greatly worsen
already-strained relations between Japan and South
towards denial' of
WWII sex slavery
