U.S. did not deliver coolant to Japan nuclear reactor

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military did not provide any coolant for a Japanese nuclear plant affected by a massive earthquake on Friday, U.S. officials said.

Earlier, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said U.S. Air Force “assets” in Japan had delivered coolant to a nuclear plant. One U.S. official said Japan had asked the United States for the coolant but ultimately handled the matter on its own.
