Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) admits meltdown at Fukushima units 1-3

Until now TEPCO has not admitted to a meltdown at more than unit 1 of the Fukushima complex. The firm has now confirmed that three of the six reactors suffered meltdowns within days of March's deadly earthquake and tsunami. Until now, Tepco had only admitted a meltdown at No. 1 reactor. But the revelation by the firm's General Manager, Junichi Matsumoto, has only raised more questions about why the extent of the damage was not disclosed earlier.
