For information about the incident at the Fukushima Nuclear Plants, visit this site that is maintained by the students of the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT:

Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) confirms that one more cooling pump in reactors 5 and 6 at the Fukushima plant are now working in addition to the emergency diesel cooling pump.

NHK citing the Japanese military says a survivor was pulled out from the rubble on Saturday, eight days after the disaster. The young man was found in Kesennuma city in Miyagi prefecture, which was one of the hardest-hit regions.

General Motors, the largest car maker in the US, will learn of the impact of the Japanese disaster on its own supply chain and stock levels of parts within two weeks, its boss has said.

More on those problems with the supply chain. With petrol running low, delivery trucks are struggling to get fuel, food and medicine to those hardest hit by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. And as provisions decline, tension rises."
