Work Begins Removing Fukushima Fuel Rods

Workers have begun the delicate task of removing fuel rods from a storage pool at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant more than 2½ years after the factory suffered a triple meltdown after being hit by a powerful earthquake and tsunami. Some experts have warned that a collision involving the fuel assemblies, a sudden loss of coolant water or another earthquake could cause a chain reaction and release huge quantities of radiation.
