2]   Radiation levels at (South) Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute’s (KAERI) research reactor surpassed the permitted emission limit, and a radioactive leak alert was issued.  The 30 megawatt HANARO unit is located in Daejeon, South Chungcheong Province.   The good news:  no actual leak is said to have occurred.
