IAEA asks Japan to stop sending 'confusing messages' on Fukushima:
The world's nuclear watchdog the International Atomic Energy Agency is demanding Japan stop sending "confusing messages" about the nuclear crisis at its Fukushima plant and explain what is happening there in detail.
The IAEA wants to know why the recently revealed tank leak of 3-hundred tons of highly radioactive water warranted a level-three on the International Nuclear Event Scale, when no other incident had justified a rating since the March 2011 meltdown.
Rubberstamping its decision Wednesday, Japan's nuclear agency said it had no clue how much contaminated water had leaked, how radioactive it was or where it went.
It added it may revise its decision based on information it receives from the plant's operator, TEPCO.
The initial disaster was rated the highest level-seven on the international scale, the same as the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.
