New explosion rocks stricken Japanese nuclear reactor

TOKYO (Reuters) - A new explosion rocked Japan’s stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex on Monday, sending a plume of smoke into the air.

Japan’s nuclear safety agency said it could not confirm whether or not the hydrogen explosion at the plant’s No.3 reactor had led to an uncontrolled leak of radioactivity.
