Japan to start building ice wall to contain radioactive water in Fukushima -- On Monday, Japanese officials approved a plan to freeze the soil beneath the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in an effort to contain radioactive water leaks. Construction of the giant, underground ice wall is expected to begin in June.
