Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee deputy chairman Barbara Judge, left, talks with Tokyo Electric Power Co. President Naomi Hirose during a press conference at TEPCO headquarters in Tokyo Friday, July 26, 2013. The utility operating Japan's crippled nuclear plant says it delayed acknowledging contaminated water leaks into the sea because it did not want to worry the public until it was certain there was a problem. Hirose told the news conference that the company delayed the announcement even though obvious signs of leaks were detected in May because officials were waiting until they were certain there was a problem.
