Record radioactivity level found at Fukushima plant well

A record high level of 710,000 becquerels of beta-ray sources, such as radioactive strontium, was detected per liter of water in an observation well at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.
The previous high reading of 550,000 becquerels per liter was found in water sampled Nov. 9 at the same well.
TEPCO said a new leak from the tank has not been confirmed. It said leaked radioactive water that has remained in the soil likely spread to the well.
