An IAEA team has inspected the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, as part of an investigation into the causes of Japan's nuclear crisis.

The fact-finding team visited Dai-ichi and other two nuclear power plants in Fukushima that survived the March 11th earthquake. They also talked with staff as to how the plant was damaged. The 18-member team consists of nuclear experts from 12 countries. The team will submit its preliminary report to the Japanese government in June. It will also prepare a report for the IAEA Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Safety to be held in Vienna in late June.

Earlier, Tokyo Electric Power Company said another 36 tons of radioactive water had leaked from a waste disposal building. The summer rainy season also increases the risk of radiation spilling into groundwater.
