TOKYO, March 23
TOKYO, March 23 (Reuters) - The temperature within part of Japan's tsunami-damaged nuclear reactor has risen above design limits, but there is no immediate danger, the nation's nuclear safety watchdog said on Wednesday.
The agency said the temperature had climbed to near 400 degrees Celsius within a pressure container at reactor No.1 at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, compared with a design limit of 302 degrees. (Reporting by Mark Bendeich)
