'Japan Radiation 7.5 Million Times Legal Limit'

Radioactive readings found in Japan seawater has reached millions of times higher than the legal limit, the operator of Fukushima's damaged nuclear plant says.

According to the findings, seawater samples taken from the water near the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant's No. 2 reactor several days ago were contaminated with radioactive iodine-131, seven and a half million times the legal limit, AP reported.

More recent findings, however, indicated that the reading has dropped to five million as of Monday.'
