Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan says his government remains in a "state of maximum alert" over the crisis at the earthquake- and tsunami-hit Fukushima nuclear plant.

Speaking to a parliament committee, Kan said today that the situation at the plant "continues to be unpredictable" and that the government "will tackle the problem while in a state of maximum alert."

Efforts to restart the cooling system at the six-reactor Fukushima Daiichi plant continue to be disrupted by leaks of radioactive materials into the air, water, and sea around the plant.
