Japan to Dump Radioactive Water into Pacific  

Japan said Monday it will dump over 10,000 tons of low-level radioactive water into the Pacific as part of emergency operations to stabilize its crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.The announcement of the last resort measure came as the Bank of Japan said business confidence had plummeted since the earthquake and tsunami hit on March 11, plunging the country into its worst crisis since World War II.The UN atomic watchdog chief Yukiya Amano, said that the three-week-old emergency, which Japan has predicted will last for months, meant an end to a "business as usual" approach to nuclear power.
