Workers evacuated as radioactivity rises in Japan reactor
Workers were evacuated on Sunday from a reactor building they were working in after high doses of radiation were detected at Japan's stricken nuclear power plant in Fukushima, the plant's operator said.
Tokyo Electric Power Co, the plant's operator, said radiation 10 million times the usual level was detected in water that had accumulated at the No.2 reactor's turbine housing unit.
An official at TEPCO said workers left the No.2 reactor's turbine housing unit to prevent exposure to radiation.
