No signs Japan nuclear fuel melting at present: IAEA
VIENNA (Reuters) - The United Nations atomic watchdog said on Monday there were no signs, at the moment, that fuel was melting at the Japanese nuclear plant stricken by a huge earthquake and tsunami.
"I think at this time we don't have any indication of fuel ...currently melting," James Lyons, a senior nuclear safety official at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told a news conference on the situation in Japan.
IAEA Deputy Director General Denis Flory said radiation monitored around the Fukushima plant had peaked early in the European day on March 12 and then fallen again that day.
