For more on Japan's nuclear crisis, we're joined by Mr.Lin Chengge, a former senior expert at the International Atomic Energy Agency. Hello, Mr. Lin.

Q1, The No. 4 reactor was apparently not operational at the time of the quake, but is reported to be on fire. Does this mean the situation is deteriorating and there is some kind of ripple effect in motion?

Q2, There have been reports of higher levels of radiation in the area. If things worsen, will there be any danger to surrounding countries?

Q3, Some say the crisis has re-ignited the debate on the overall safety of nuclear power. What lessons do you think can be learned from this situation?
