(Reuters) - Japan’s nuclear safety agency said on Friday that it was aware of the ultimate “Chernobyl solution” to contain the nuclear disaster at its quake-hit nuclear plant by covering it in sand and encasing it in concrete, but added that it was currently focusing on efforts to restore power and cool down the reactors.
