    The International Atomic Energy Agency reports some improvements at Japan’s nuclear power plant, though water is still being injected into three of the units. Radiation levels in major cities have not changed significantly, but radioactivity has been detected in some fresh vegetables near the plant.

    The UN atomic watchdog said on Sunday there had been some positive developments at Japan's disaster-hit nuclear power plant in the last 24 hours but that the overall situation remained very serious.

    [Graham Andrew, Senior Official of International Atomic Energy Agency]:
    "Efforts to restore electrical power at the site continue. Offsite electrical power has been connected to the local substation for unite Two today. Work is continuing under difficult conditions to connect power from the substation to the reactor building. Sea water is still being injected into the reactor pressure vessels of units One, Two and Three. Water injection is not needed for unit Four as the reactor is in outage."

    Graham Andrew also said radiation levels in major Japanese cities had not changed significantly.

    [Graham Andrew, Senior Official of International Atomic Energy Agency]:
    "Radiation levels in major Japanese cities have not changed significantly since yesterday and remain below those which are dangerous for human health."

    He said his organization could confirm that in some areas near the plant radioactive iodine had been detected in some freshly grown vegetables.
