Radiation levels a threat to human health: Japan

Radiation levels around reactors are now a threat to human health, the Japanese government said Tuesday.

A fire has broken out at the number-four reactor at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 atomic power plant and radiation levels have risen considerably, Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said.

People between 20-30 km from reactor should stay indoors, Kan said.
