Top Japanese official: Fukishima not contained

JiJi - It is not appropriate to say that the nuclear accident at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima No.1 power plant has been contained, industry minister Toshimitsu Motegi said.

"The word, 'end,' is inappropriate because many tasks remain unresolved," Motegi told a House of Councillors Budget Committee meeting, speaking of a declaration of the end of the accident that was issued by the previous government. "We don't use that word."
