Wikileaks: IAEA Warned Japan That Nuke Plants Couldn't Handle Quakes

During a December 2008 G8 Nuclear Safety and Security Group (NSSG) meeting in Tokyo, an official from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said that saftey plans were out of date and that earthquakes could be a "serious problem" for aging Japanese nuclear reactors."
