Ex-US nuke regulator: Japan slow on Fukushima leak

FILE - In this Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 file photo, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, right, wearing a red helmet, looks at an impervious wall made of steel pipe sheet pile installed along the coast to contain the radiation-contaminated water leakage during his inspection tour to the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okuma, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan, Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013. A former U.S. nuclear regulatory chief said Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013 that leaks of contaminated water at the Fukushima plant had been known since early in the crisis and have worsened because Japan acted too slowly.
