TOKYO, March 12 (Reuters) - Tokyo Electric Power Co said pressure inside the No.1 reactor at its Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant has been rising, with the risk of a radiation leak, Jiji News reported on Saturday.
TEPCO plans to take measures to release the pressure, the report added. No comment was immediately available from TEPCO.
The plant’s cooling system malfunctioned after a strong earthquake hit northeast Japan. (Reporting by Chisa Fujioka, Risa Maeda and Osamu Tsukimori)
