Tokyo (Reuters) - workers received the command, short escape knit Japanese nuclear power plant on Wednesday after radiation levels increased, a development which the crisis suggested was spiral out of control.

Only hours earlier, another fire broke in the earthquake crippled body which draw small amounts of radiation sent in Tokyo of the past 24 hours, fear in the capital and triggering international alarm.

Nuclear experts said the solutions for radiation leaks at the Daiichi complex in Fukushima, 240 km to suppress (150 miles north of Tokyo, were what remained as one of the world's worst industrial disasters in memory last desperate efforts to stem cells.)

"This is a slow nightmare," said Dr. Thomas Neff, a research affiliate at the Center for international studies, that of Technology Institute is in the Massachusetts.

Panic about the economic impact of last Friday knocked out $620 billion from Japan's stock market massive earthquake and tsunami in the first two days of the week, but the Nikkei index rebounded on Wednesday and was up 4.5 percent.

Nevertheless, estimates of losses on the Japanese edition of damage to buildings, production and consumer activity ranged from between 10 and 16 trillion yen ($ 5.125$ 200 billion), up to one and a-half times of the economic losses from the devastating Kobe earthquake in 1995.

Also significant disruption of the global supply chain, particularly in the areas of technology and auto threatens damage to Japan the production of base and infrastructure.

Scores of flights to Japan have been stopped or redirected, Tokyo avoid passengers fear of radiation and on Wednesday, France calls its nationals in the city of either Japan or head in the South of the country to leave.

The fate of hundreds of thousands homeless Quake which the and devastating tsunami, which followed the snow in some of the worst affected areas deteriorated overnight after a cold snap brought.

While the death toll to around 4 ' 000 is, more than 7,000 are listed as missing, and the figure is expected to rise.

In this work of Fukushima authorities spent days desperately trying to prevent water which is intended to the radioactive cores of the reactors of evaporate, leading to overheating and possibly a dangerous meltdown cool.

Care centres to damage now, on a part of the building where no.. 4 Reactor rods were spent in pools of water outside the containment and also part of the reactor No. 2, which helps cool and catch most caesium stored, iodine and strontium in its waters.

Workers of attempted a street build so that fire engines could reach the reactor No. 4, where a fire broke out on Wednesday. Flames were no longer on the building of the reactor, but television images showed smoke or steam is visible.

Japanese officials said that they were talking about military help in the work in the United States.

Earlier concerns that the skeleton handling of the crisis enough, after working for days since the earthquake damaged exhausted the plant were or might not be large crews mounted. Authorities moved leave on Tuesday, only 50 750 workers.
