Fresh blast at Japan nuclear plant (Second blast)

SENDAI, Japan: An explosion rocked an earthquake-hit nuclear plant Monday, as Japan struggled to avert a catastrophic reactor meltdown caused by a quake and tsunami feared to have killed more than 10,000.

At least 11 workers are missing and seven are injured as new explosion rocked Japan's stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex, sending a plume of smoke into the air.

After Monday's blast, Japan's nuclear safety agency said it could not confirm whether or not the hydrogen explosion at the plant's No.3 reactor had led to an uncontrolled leak of radioactivity.
