Japan is to release a revised plan for stabilizing its stricken nuclear plant amid signs that three troubled reactors have suffered worse-than-expected damage from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
Authorities insist they will stick with a timetable to bring the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex to a stable cold shutdown by early next year.
Tuesday's new plan will provide more details on achieving that goal, including new ways to restore cooling systems that were knocked out by the twin disasters.
The government is also expected to provide more details about how it will support thousands of evacuees who had to flee their homes near the plant.
